Our garden in June

Today is Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day, hosted by Carol at May Dreams Gardens. I don’t have a lot of flowers, but I am enjoying some orange hawkweed, which I hope will pop up in more places in the long grass this summer and next year.

Tomorrow is Garden Bloggers’ Foliage Follow Up, hosted by Pam at Digging. If grass counts as “foliage,” this is my contribution as well.

You can read more about our backyard in Stuttgart, Germany, here.

In a field by the river
my love and I did stand.  .  .  .
She bid me take life easy,
as the grass grows on the weirs. . .

— W. B. Yeats, from “Down by the Salley Gardens

  1. I love your garden as a naturalistic landscape, I bet you really enjoy your time there, I know I would. Congrats for your garden!

  2. I, too, have daisies and hawkweed blooming right now — although my hawkweed is the yellow Hieracium pratense. My spirea ‘Magic Carpet’ just began blooming. I enjoy both the cultivated plants and the wild volunteers.
