The black/honey locusts are now bursting with their cascade of tiny white flowers that fill the air with the heavy sweet scent that reminds me of the tropics. If I close my eyes and breathe in, I can momentarily transport myself to Hawaii and my little sister. 
Yes, it's most definitely June! Lush and green- and the blooms that surround my little house make it feel like a celebration every time we step out the door. 
Over the years I've added bunches of perennials... which means that they return like old familiar friends. Here's who's currently visiting:
Hydrangeas, lupins, lilies, catmint, poppies, columbines, jacob's ladder... and more. What's blooming in your neck of the woods?

  1. Wow! How very very beautiful. We are not very talented in the garden department, so there's growing what has been growing and it is all fine with us. I love June!

  2. I took a ton of garden pics yesterday too! Here in the Hudson Valley, blooming in my yard, peonies, some of the asters, love in the mist & columbine. I love seeing what's blooming in everyone's yards! Looks like a botanical garden at your house Maya!

  3. I've begun drying the first batch of homegrown herbs and teas!
    Have a wonderful week Maya!

  4. I also love the locusts! I'm lucky enough to have a pink one that bloomed this year - between that and the honeysuckle it's absolutely heaven!

  5. Oh I just got a bunch of flowers from my mothers garden.
    Columbines, chervil seed heads and 2 others I don't know the name of.
    Personally I love hostas, and dearly wish I had a garden of my own.
    until then I enjoy the flowers my mother brings me:)
