Ambling Around The June Garden

The beautiful James McFarlane lilac always reminds me of Adam, who thought we should have a lilac in the early stages of planning this woodland garden. Now he lives in France sans lilac bushes!

The rhododendron was purchased at a rock bottom price at the local grocery store and was tagged "white rhododendron"! Despite its common roots, it puts on a lovely show each year in a little hollow off the side lawn.

Spiraea japonica - Little Princess - is tucked into the edge of the woodland by the upper lawn. It is in a shady area and it takes a sharp eye to spot it among the ferns and native trees.

The window boxes are done up this year in shades of pink, yellow, white and blue.
