Garden in June

June is the month when our roses New Dawn
put on a spectacular show!

This is a dovecote my hubby build. It is fabulous!!!!!
The bottom bracket is antique.
He worked on it a very long time.

It was a true labor of love, and my birthday gift a few years ago.
A climbing hydrangea has grown all the way to the eaves.

We found the metal dove weather vane at a thrift shop!!!

The plant "Feverfew" abounds!
It makes new "babies" constantly.

This hydrangea will change colors many times over the season.

This rose is called "Ballerina".

It is a sweet old-fashioned rose.

A view of the "New Dawn" rose arbor.

Last winter it was burried under over 3' of snow,
and we thought we lost the roses.

After much pruning [hubby looked like he had been in a cat fight],
they survived.

Hope you enjoyed the pictures.

God bless,

  13. Evi, It is ALWAYS a treat to see one of your posts come on the screen in my google reader! I am so glad you started a blog as I so enjoy what you share. LOVE your gardens...adding Feverfew to my garden wishlist. Will need to see if it will tolerate the hot summers here in Georgia. First glance and I was in love with your dovecote but after reading how it came to be, oh my...it is even more special if that is even possible! Xo, Sue

  14. Evi, I love your dovecote best of all! My husband wondered how big it is and if doves are using it?
