Early June Walk-about

I went for a walk around the front and back yards this morning and there's so much is in bloom! I just couldn't wait until GBBD on the 15th, so I'll show you some of the blossoms now.

It's true that raindrops on Ladies Mantle shine like diamonds in the sun.

A delicate white Columbine is close to a new, smaller "not-planted-by-me " neighbour!!

The Slender Deutzia bush is in full bloom under the Magnolia tree.

The peonies are starting to open.

 The perennial Bachelor's Buttons (Centaurea montana) are in full bloom.

Here is a wild columbine Aquilegia canadensis

My Weigela is starting to bloom.

And my herb pots are planted: thyme, rosemary, parsley and chives.
