Summer Flowers 01

All of these photos were taken on Sunday, June 2nd, 2013.

First is the end of the spring flowers:  the last of my three rhododendron bushes to bloom.

The peony buds from my big spring flower post have now opened.  I value them as much for their fragrance as for how they appear to the eye.

The ‘woolly’ creeping thyme (Thymus pseudolanginosus) covers this slope in flowers.  It is mixed with two other varieties of creeping thyme that will bloom later.

Bees spend a lot of time in the thyme.

My roses are starting to bloom.  This bush is a Patiohit® rose, but I don’t know which variety.  It was a present.

The flowers have a faint fragrance.

These are ‘ruby meidiland’ roses.

They look nice, at least until black spot and Japanese beetles start to take their toll.

This is the first of my daylilies to bloom.  That looks like a weevil on the left petal.

How about some fruit with the flowers:  the ‘north star’ cherry tree.
