Garden Flowering Log - June

The pace of flowering in our gardens slowed down in June, although a considerable redundancy in some categories (like lilies) kept things very colorful. A friend and colleague got married just this past week, and our garden supplied all the table flowers. It was a bloomin' good time! Over the past 30 days 37 new things have flowered (And the Sinocalycanthus is still in bloom!), bringing the total for this season to 233 flowering events. The count is still on, but 300 may be a stretch.
