The Front Yard in June


Every year is different.  We have had a lot of rain this year. Normally in the month of June my garden is somewhat starting to wear out the chlorophyll effect.  In other word, our place starts to get really hot in May.  So far, I have not seen a sign of global warming in my garden this year - or else it came camouflaged in low temperatures and high precipitation.

Since this has been an unusual year, I thought that I'd take pictures of the front yard before the blazing light intensity and soil-cracking low relative humidity turn the greenery into gray or golden brown.

So I stood in the middle of the driveway and took pictures of plants that surrounded me.

Forgotten corner...

Trees in need of pruning.

Northwest - my neighbors carpet roses.

Eastern side...


Western side...


Roses in front of the house.

Have a great summer everyone!

I love dark-leaved trees. Are they plums? Beautiful!

Your Santa Barbara daisies are so adorable! Lovely views. I thought the same thing last year - it was cold, and rainy. This year has been the exact opposite! I hope next year bring a bit of normalcy!

You have such a lovely garden with just enough mixtures of colours from foliage and flowers!

Gorgeous is all that needs to be said.

Your garden is lovely. I was so hoping the weather wouldn't be a repeat of last year, but I think so far it's been much the same. Damp and cold. You're right though, it helps the gardens look good a little later into the season, but I'm actually looking forward to some heat!

It is nice to get the larger view of your gardens. They look so good I am at a loss for words.

Thanks for all your kind comments. Sorry, I was not able to respond to you all. I am currently overseas and I'll let you know later about my trip.
