June in the Garden

Hello everyone!
I hope you are enjoying the warm summery weather.  We have been busy with so many projects that I haven't had much time for blogging. I really miss it. The schoolhouse is getting a new roof and we have a large fencing job in the making. All of which is wonderful and exciting, but our days are full. Our oldest daughter, Arabelle, is at 4H camp for the week. I am sure she will have a wonderful time. I miss her helping with the chicken chores. She has become such a wonderful help. 
My flower gardens have keep me busy. I have added many new iris, phlox, and Lily of the Valley. I am also still getting my annuals in the ground. We have peas, onions,kale, and lettuces galore in the veggie garden and Neal planted some corn. Other parts of our veggie garden still need a lot of work. Perhaps, it won't all get done this year.  In the meantime, I am loving all the flowers of June. The peonies are finished and the daylilies/clematis are starting to unfold. Summer colors are now taking the place of the pastel spring colors...

The Sweet Rocket and Iris were beautiful this year. I hope to share more photos soon.
I hope you are enjoying your week!

Happy Gardening!
