It’s hard to believe that it is already mid June. 

 Almost the first day of summer. 

 Things are blooming away here. 

 My vegetables seem to be doing well so far.

  Putting in these raised beds makes it so much easier to take care of them.  

 I have delphiniums in blue, 

and purple.

There are nasturtiums as well as

Evening Primrose(sun drops),



and Campanula cherry bells.

 I love this time of year. 

 I hope you are enjoying this wonderful month of June.

Visit Bloomin tuesday






  1. Your garden is so bright, lush, and neat. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Thank you for showing us your June garden. The delphiniums caught my eye. Beautiful.

  3. Love your red metal chairs Teresa … you have given me an idea for my rusty ones, but I think green would work better here. Your photos are great … I love the Campanula cherry bells! Beautiful photos!

  4. Your gardens are lovely. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Your veggies look very healthy, especially those lettuces. Makes me want to have a salad right now — for breakfast. The Alaska series of nasturtiums is my favourite, I think, because of the lovely variegated foliage. Which reminds me, I have nasturtium seeds that I’d better plant asap or I’ll be too late. Thanks for the reminder! Happy blooms day.

  6. Hey, Teresa. Your garden is beautiful in bloom! And your red accents of patio furniture and red door are great choices!! My faves are the lilies, nasturtium and evening primrose. Pretty!

  7. Absolutely breathtaking! And your raised beds look awesome! Bet you can’t wait for all the yummy food to come!

  8. The red chairs are the perfect compliment to all your beautiful blooms! Wonderful garden shots!

  9. I can’t decide which I like most, the blue Delphiniums or the purple. Just gorgeous.

  23. Wow!Your garden is really Beautiful!and the vegetable garden is really coming along,won’t be long till you have so many great tasting things to eat!
    Enjoy your weekend ~

  24. I am in awe of your clematis!! Mine are new and I understand that it takes a couple of years to get what you have…. I’m waiting. In doing the concrete around the firepit…. Did you just take odd hunks of concrete and piece them together? Is that a moss growing in between them? Love how neat and weedfree your vegetables are :)

  25. Judi, Those are actually pieces of slate or stone that I made the patio with. There is some moss growing between but mostly it’s grass that I planted there. I just have to weed wack it once a week to keep it in check. My climatis is about 3 years old so it is putting on a great show for me this year. They like the sun but keep their roots cool with another plant like hostas or lilies. Thanks for visiting

  26. Hello Teresa – you garden image is now uploaded at our site. Many thanks for your submission. There is a link back to your gardenshoeonline site also.

  33. Very nice garden setup. I can see you at sitting on the chair in the middle of your garden enjoying the sight. Specially when those vegetables starts to bear fruits for your table. Congratulations for a job well done on your garden.

  34. I love your home and yard! You have some beautiful blooms. I have a campanula that may be cherry bells. It looks like yours, anyway. It is loaded with buds, but no blooms yet.

  35. Yes Sue, the cherry bells are campanula. They are so pretty!
