I do not have formal flower gardens but I do have flowers! Late June is the peak time for flowers here. The Lupine it the favorite of my DH so I have planted and divided them everywhere I think they will grow ... and ... not get mowed over by the same DH!
Siberian Iris are at their peak all around the pond!
I received a gift clump 20 + years ago and have just been dividing & dividing...
The first plant that I planted on this land was my Rhododendron...the Washington State Flower. It was hit hard this winter but I am happy to say that it is bouncing back with flowers and new growth...phew...I was a bit worried!
This ever expanding Wild Rose briar patch came with the land....looks like I should add gathering rose petals to my to do list!
Hoping for a good blackberry year...looking promising with the cultivated & the wild!
These Peonies I dug up and transplanted from the house we had before...never found a place for them around the house...but they seem happy here on this slope...a nice bouquet for the house!
Can't forget the wild ones...I am on a crusade to spread Milkweed to feed the Monarchs...more on that another time... http://monarchwatch.org/
Thought these spent dandelions looked sort of nice....
