June Blooms and Random Views

June photo tour

Time for my monthly photo tour! All of these pictures were taken around our yard....a mix of wild flowers and perennials, and some miscellaneous shots. Hope you enjoy this little glimpse of June beauty!

Starting with these beautiful purple and white irises. I took a picture of them early in the month, thinking I almost missed them, but they have continued to bloom all month long!

And then onto some of the wild flowers that grow all over our acreage.

This is a painted daisy...one of our perennials that grows among the false spirea hedge.

Brian brought these home and just put them in the ground until we could find a home for them...they seem to like it here in the sand!


I had to include this picture...I love these trees! We don't have many on our property, and of the 50 we planted, only a few survived...but these ones are thriving in the pure sand! I like to pretend my house is surrounded by them! One day it will be...these trees are producing a small forest with all the shoots they are sending out.

My beautiful fence and arbour covered in virginia creeper. It gets better every year!

And last, a pretty little shrub that Brian planted...but I can't remember what it is...maybe someone can tell me.

That's it for June. I can't believe we're just a few days away from July...see you next time!


  1. Thanks for the tour. Your place has so much beauty.

  2. It seems like just a few weeks ago you were having a late snow. And now all of a sudden it's green and flowering. I love those irises!
