Poppies , poppies , poppies ….
|Poppies everywhere, I crushed and sprinkled last years seed heads all over the bare soil , that was the lawn till last summer. And how wonderful to have they are ...|

In the garden this morning...
|I got out early to check out the shade garden's watering needs, not too bad , even the Rodgersia looks content. Thankfully things have really filled in , that helps so much in these hot days.|

Back in the shade...
|I've finally deadhead the terrible running Eurphorbia on my dry slope , pulled SOME of the "ugly grass" as my mother calls it. It will we back the neighboring house is a mass of weeds and "ugly grass" …back to my book !|

A happy grouping...
|It's taken quite a few years of trying this and trying that , but I like this years planting. In the past I've had trouble with floppy thugs , spilling over the neighboring plants : Artemisia , Nepeta , both have had to move …not good neighbors|

June in Bloom...
|I found one photo that had just about everything that is blooming at the moment in what was the front lawn : Jolly mounds of candy tuft that self seeds like crazy at the bottom. Next on the right a pink Veronica , brought from my mother's garden . Above and all around Lavender poppies , again self seeding freely everywhere, everywhere . Taking center stage , Yet another selfseeder , this one a biannual Salvia Turkestanica , one of the first things I planted . At the far left is the good old native Achillea millefolium .|
It didn't take much coaxing to get the plants migrating into the bare, grass free soil !
Thank you Carol for hosting and for many more June blooms May Dreams Gardens.
