Garden Vistas Part II (June Bloomday)

June is such a wonderful month in the garden! Plants are on the grow, filling in empty spaces, blooming and producing fruit. The great wall of jasmine fills the patio with its sweet, relaxing fragrance. For a short time, I can sit back and enjoy the show. For this post, I will focus on the whole symphony of the garden, rather than the show stopping soloists. Though the individuals are pretty, the whole picture is much more impressive.
