My Garden Right Now - Going into Summer

Michelle at Veg Plotting started a meme of My Garden Right Now back in March. At least that is when I came upon it. I enjoyed the meme so much and she has resurrected it during the Chelsea show. So I am playing along.
I tried to get the same views I showed during March. You can see the garden as it looked then by clicking here.
The following is a little wider look at the veg garden. Not much happening  here now. The tomatoes are very small, the broccoli has been eaten by the rabbits. I have tossed a few seeds in here. We will have to wait to see what pops up. 
As you can see we will have plenty of grapes for jelly and the birds.
This area has really filled in as you can see. A lot of green in my garden now.
Along this path that was lined with daffodils there is all sorts of things up.
When I see pictures of my garden I realize it would be nice to have more of the color wheel in the garden. If you look closely there is a tall yellow lily blooming and some purple iris in that background plus the tree leaves of red. I guess there is more color than I thought. Green is a great variant.
How is your garden right now?

  1. It's all looking lush and verdant Lisa, what a contrast to March! Thanks for taking part in #mygardenrightnow again. You're right, March was the first ever event... we'll be going again the first weekend in September :)

  3. My garden is very green right now, too. Shade gardens are tricky, especially in early summer. Even though Alliums prefer sun, I think I'm going to try more Alliums that bloom in May and June. My Peonies are blooming, but they really would like more sun than I can give them. Experiments, experiments. Your garden looks great, and the photos with you in your hat are perfect!

    1. Beth, my alliums are finsihed for the year. I doubt peonies would bloom here. Not enough sun. Experiments are a sure thing.

  5. You are an elegant gardener not like me who only has to set foot in the allotment to end up dirty.

  8. lisa i see that we share a deep love of nature and nurturing! is there anything more healing than placing seeds in springs warming soul and watching in wonder as these tiny miracles burst open and strive for the light? thank you for your visits at haiku my heart and your warm words which always lift my heart.

  9. But there is color in your garden, Lisa--a lovely gardener in blue, my favorite color! Your garden looks so green and lush. My garden is mostly green right now, too, though it may turn brown if we don't get some rain soon.

    1. I have been watering all morning. We haven't had a drop of rain in June. May was a little better but still the ground is cracking and it looks sad. am worried about losing some new plantings. We planted 7 shrubs this spring to replace some invasives we removed.

  10. Good to find you Lisa. Your garden has certainly filled out since March. It's always amazing what happens over a couple of months. Love your hat!

  11. You and your garden look great! Since you mentioned the rabbit...Nate has planted zinnias (because I LOVE them) and some green peppers. The rabbits have eaten ALL of them down to 2" bare stalks. He has virtually given up growing anything. Any suggestions on how to keep the rabbits away (that isn't too much work for Nate)?

    1. Gosh Beth if I knew how to stop rabbits from eating things in the garden I would be a millionaire. They are a pest. Wish I could help you. Some people think that spray that is sold to repel rabbits helps. But you have to apply it every time it rains.

  12. The garden is beautiful. I love progression photos. They are very good for remembering what blooms when - a problem I have in January.
