Looks Good, Smells Good, Tastes Good, In my Garden

We expect June to be a hot month here. The daily thundershowers have ceased and irrigation engines drone in the background. Here's what caught my eye this morning. June is a month for roses, a second round of bloom following the first show here in April.

Julia Child. I have two, one full of blossoms and one resting.
This is only Julia's second year, great floribunda.
Violas behind this rose are still blooming.

Most of the violas in full sun have dwindled away.
These have just gone on and on.

Gardenias are still the most fragrant spots in the garden.
The biggest show is over but new blossoms still open daily.

I had eaten most of the ripe blueberries when I thought to make a pic.

A collage of yellow daylilies, poster flower for June.

These daylilies are heirlooms, here for more than fifty years.
They open with fragrance in the evening and last through the next day.

Flowers and text are from the garden of Nell Jean at www.dottypants.blogspot.com in the hot, humid depths of Southwest Georgia where Gardenia fragrance floats on the breeze. Join us in a glass of iced Ruby Tea, dark and barely sweet and oatmeal cookies with walnuts and dried cranberries.

The roses are beautiful. Your daylilies look great. This is the first year mine looked that good. The bluberries look yummy.
