With the dryer than normal weather we are experiencing I am finding it hard to keep up with the watering and such.  Hopefully all the plants and flowers will thrive.
Here are a few pictures of what is blooming right now in my back yard.
The grass is already turning brown which usually doesn't happen until July.  We can't afford to water our lawns because our water rates are ridiculously high.  Here we live in the Pacific Northwest where we have tons of rain and numerous rivers and lakes but our water isn't affordable.
This is one of the few daylilies that I have kept in my garden bed.  They can be quite aggressive and tend to take over so I have to really keep this one in check.
Not sure if this is a salvia or maybe a member of the lavender family but I sure like the color of it.
I have yet to find something I like to plant on this trellis so it will just have to hold it's own for now.
The tomatoes are quite agreeable to the hot temperatures.  
And that's what's happening in my back yard for June.  I am looking forward to July and August to see how these all fill in and take off.
 The watering can started leaking around the bottom so I cut out some vinyl and stuck it on to spruce it up a bit.  I think I will keep it even though it is useless.

Oh Connie what a beautiful back yard. Is there no end to what you can do? I've already fallen in love with all your creative crafts and now I"m smitten with your flowers and garden beds! Nice work everything looks so lovely!

Hi Connie, Everything looks beautiful. You must have cooler temps than we do as those flowers look lush and beautiful. So, I'm curious about your stacked glass item. What is it, and did you make it?

I love your yard!!!! You're tomatoes are beautiful.

I can't believe you have to pay a fortune for water. That's crazy.
Hopefully you will get enough rain to keep your lawn green and lush.

Your watering can is darling. I used to collect them. I loved having them around the yard.
