How Does My Garden Grow – June Edition

This morning I noticed the climbing rose by the front door is home to a few colonies of tiny, white bugs that could be aphids or mites or something else entirely. On the bright side, the rest of the garden having had a good start last month is continuing to bloom and grow pretty well, so… yay!

The rhododendron in the back is finally starting to bloom. Others around town have been in bloom for a couple of weeks or so already and I was wondering when this one would get in on the blooming action. I’m not a huge fan of pink flowers but this has a nice purple-y tinge to it.

These may have been planted deliberately at some point or they may be weeds. All I know is that they live in a flowerbed I’ve yet to tackle and tame.

A weed that grows everywhere and that I usually pull up but this one is part of a group that’s growing under the deck and since it’s not really in my way I decided to leave it alone.

I quite like ferns and was happy to see this one pop up.

No idea what these are but we have a small bunch of them by the front door.

Weigela? Possibly.

Again I have no clue what this is. I do like the bright blue flowers against the red and green leaves though.

How’s your garden doing? Would love to hear about in the comments!
