Once again it's the glorious month of June, and the roses in my garden are out in full force. Here are a few photos.
|The roses here grow up into my styrax obassia.|
|The tree's common name is fragrant snowbell, because of it heavenly scented hanging flowers. They were in bloom a month ago, when there were also peeping chickadee babies in the birdhouse. See the chickadee bottom right?|
|A new bush… the ubiquitous red knock-outs|
|Golden showers with a clematis "Etoille Violette" in the background.|

|The garage is covered with New Dawn roses for one glorious week in June.|
|They cascade over the front of the garage too.|
|One New Dawn with roses that came with the yard 20+ years ago.|
|A few New Dawns with Allium, spires of speedwell and self-seeding white feverfew, with a touch of catmint up front|
|One more of the roses on the garage… such a fleeting pleasure.|
Please… don't forget to stop and smell the roses!!! Happy June.
