Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day June 15, 2017

What a weird month we have had. Looking back same time last year, there are so many things that have yet to start blooming.

Fear not, there is still a lot to see! Well, maybe too much so I apologize in advance. But that’s what happens when you’re a “collector”, right?

Here’s a bit of what is happening throughout my garden right now…
