on a Wordless Wednesday. 😎 Happy June gardening.
Wordless indeed! There ARE no words for these beauties! I’m weak in the knees looking at that pink iris, but they are all gorgeous. And congratulations on the shed, which looks so comfy there wearing its baskets and bench that you’d think it had been there forever. Happy June gardening to you, too, Judy!

I wish I could remember where I got that Iris, but I guess I can just admire it and and not worry about it. 🙂 The shed does look like it’s always been there, and my potting bench fit right on the side. I’m not sure how I managed without it. 🙂
Oh those irises! Beautiful! Great garden shed.
We share a fondness for Irises. 🙂
Those beautiful blooms need no words. Their beauty speaks for them. Your new shed is a gem and is a perfect addition to your gardens. I’d be sitting on that bench with an iced tea admiring all the beauty I created. The shed door is the gateway to all things wonderful to maintain a garden. Thanks for sharing.
I must admit I love my shed, and it is so nice to have all the tools right where they are needed. Hubby built me a nice drop down table in there too so I really used that with seedlings on the way to the garden.
Those iris’ are really lovely. I planted some hostas that my BFF’s mom gave me out of her garden this past weekend. 🙂
I’ve never met a hosta I didn’t love and especially ones that come from friends make me smile even more. Each spring when they surface, it will be like a visit from a dear friend. 🙂
I love that idea. 🙂 I checked them this morning. They’re doing good. I was a bit worried since it’s kind of a rocky area that I planted them in.
Her mom also told me how I can transplant my peonies so I’ll be doing that this year too.
Only one word will do: Wowsah! So lovely. And do I have garden-shed envy? You bet I do.
That shed has character, AND it came from Casco, Maine. 🙂
Your flowers are beautiful, but I am calling the picture of your shed as my favorite today. The composition of the photo is perfect, and I love the little work station you’ve set up on the side.
Thank you. That potting table is a project you would appreciate. The base part was from a large work station a friend had in his basement. When he passed, his wife asked if we wanted it, and we were glad to take it. We cut the original in two, and gave one to our daughter. This one, my husband put on wheels, and added the back. I use it all gardening season and then usually roll it in the barn for the winter. I’m thinking I may put a cover on it this year and leave it in place. Bottom line, I love my shed and my potting table that has special memories.
That’s a great story. You must enjoy working there.
It is just lovely to see such colour and summer flowers, not to mention your garden shed which looks great. Your pink Iris is such an eye-catcher, and not to mention your Day Lilies (that is what I would call them, I don’t know if I’ve got that right?).
Happy gardening, and I hope you are getting plenty of sunshine and rain.
Your are right. They are the first ones to bloom, and the rest aren’t even close. We had three days of rain which was much needed, and today we have sunshine. Nice balance.
Your potting shed is the sweetest little thing!…a cozy home in which to work, and rest while admiring the fruit of your labor.
I’m always surprised to see an entire palette of color splashed across the faces of the blooms you show us….poinsettias, in the past, for example. Your peach iris is new to me this time. I’ve only been familiar with purple/yellow and blue violet. But the yellow day lily…..we’ve got those gracing the edge of our woods. What a burst of sunshine amid an ocean of green on our wooded lot! As I recall, you’ve shown those beauties in an array of other colors, too. I once saw poppies in a catalog….blue! I wanted to buy a few plants, but knew they’d take one look at me and keel over! 🤪
That little yellow daylily is always the first one to pop. Poppies are so beautiful but a tiny bit challenging. I had a peach one for many years, and it died last year much to my dismay. I’ve bought a couple of new ones but so far no gorgeous peach. Thank you for the chuckle on the plant keeling over because there isn’t a gardener around who hasn’t had that happen numerous times. 🙂
Beautiful flowers. The dark burgundy one in the lower right corner calls to me. Just lovely
Isn’t that the most gorgeous clematis ever? I have about eight clematis plants and most of them don’t like where they live. That one is in full sun the majority of the day, and is one happy camper. 🙂
Your “she shed” is wonderful!! Every bloom looks perfect. I want to come over with my macro lens and play.
Oh, would that be one fun adventure. 🙂
I think so too! 😀
This is a dream shed and potting table! The iris are so beautiful, when they arrive I really think it is summer (although you wouldn’t have thought so earlier this week!).
Together they are very practical. This weather has been like riding a roller coaster. 90 to 60 and back to 90, and the veggie plants aren’t liking it either.
They aren’t. My tomatoes were looking good and they just stopped and want to be left alone!
My tomatoes are not looking good right now. It is new soil, we had that cold spell and then excessive heat so I’m not sure what the cause is, but they are not happy.
I think your peachy pink iris may be “Beverly Sills”, named after an American opera singer. I have it, too, and it’s blooming like crazy right now. I really love the one pictured below it – purply pink and yellow is such an interesting combo. And like everyone, I love your shed and potting bench.
Thank you! I have no idea where I got it, and for certain I didn’t know the name. I love Iris. They don’t last long, but they are so beautiful when blooming. I am really enjoying the shed and bench situated together right in the garden.
You have some wonderful and beautiful flowers in your garden 😀 😀
Thank you. If I had your photography skills, the photos would be better. 🙂
Oh how beautiful Judy! And your garden shed is a delight to my eyes! And your potting bench next to it is nothing but perfect. I’m swooning over that pink Iris!
Happy June Judy!
Thanks, Nancy, and I hope the lake living is going well. I think you’re overdue for a post. 🙂
Lake Life has been fabulous! 😊
FYI: I took a chance and clicked on the pictures via the WordPress Reader, and they all displayed beautifully. It’s so hard to know how the photographic posts will come out, so I thought I’d share that with you. Love that pink iris in particular. – Marty
Thank you for that info. I’m with you – I never know what it will look like. I spent an inordinate amount of time just trying to rearrange the photos. I do it on a laptop and use my phone as my research tool. LOL I’m hanging in there with the Editor, but once in a while like moving those photos around is not all that intuitive and I have to look it up. That pink iris is a beauty.
Wow its amazing I want to draw them all!!
Ah, you have artistic talent. I applaud your skills because I certainly don’t have any unless someone hands me a stencil. 🙂
You may not think you have that skill but your skill is taking photos.
On my blog I am going to put some pictures of my painting and drawings if you would like you can see them.
What a perfect set up you have there, Judy. The shed, the potting table, and the bench for when you need a rest. I also love that you have hanging baskets on your shed. Such beautiful flowers, especially the stunning Iris. Happy June gardening. 😍
You made my day! I hope June is a good one for you too.
This is the perfect post to read this morning, because it’s grey and drizzly here. Winter has arrived! Your beautiful blooms have brightened my day.
I’m glad I can return the favor for when you post those handsome and colorful birds in the middle of our winter. 🙂
It’s icy cold outside this morning again but the rain yesterday was very welcome.
Love these, Judy!
I’m glad so I can balance out all your gorgeous flowers.
Such pretty flowers and I love your shed and potting table. I’ve been hinting to my hubby for a table like that.
That table has seen more plants divided and potted up than I can count. I keep it painted with exterior paint, store it in the barn or cover it for the winter, and it serves me well. I’d highly recommend one.
Lots of beautiful blooms and great color. Love the blue Irises.
Spent Memorial Day doing ‘feet on the ground’ looking at rentals for the eldest in the McPherson/Lindsborg area. Boy have they had the rain!! Your flowers are looking glorious!
Now, you’re talking an area I recognize. Hope you found what you were looking for and s/he has a wonderful time there.
Thank you 😊
Love your new shed! Isn’t it amazing how once you have it, you can’t imagine being without it?
Yes, that is exactly how I feel. 🙂
So pretty, Judy! I esp. like the peach iris and the burgundy clematis. Is the columbine a double?
Yes. I have two of them, and they have really been pretty this year.
You must really be enjoying having your garden shed and potting bench to assist in all your gardening chores.
I love having all my equipment together. I actually smile just looking at it. 🙂
I do envy the shed. I had a shed in my first BIG garden, but I was too busy with the actual garden and little children to use it and get it outfitted, and now 2 gardens later, I am relegated to a bench in the corner of the garage! So be it! I love yours!
I’ve wanted a shed for years, but never did anything about it. I think the aging process had a little to do with it. Life is short so why not, and having gardening tools in one place sure helps. 🙂
