Flower Viewing in June (part 1)

The day before yesterday, my friend took me two places to enjoy flowers in June.
One is the flower garden of the private house my friend knew from the local paper introducing the beautiful place. The other our city park. Today, I'll invite you to private house's flower garden.  Bear with me lots of pictures p;)

the owner of the house prepared the place to appreciate their flower garden


I'm surprised with the variety of colors for irises; especially yellow



















I had a lucky day being able to see these rare (for me?) plants called Godetia and spiraea japonica (Shimotsuke; シモツケ).
I put links of the flowers with their names (picture page & Wikipedia)












And very kind lady of the house shared some ’シモツケ' for us strangers visited all of a sudden. I decorated them inside of my tiny front door. I was almost in awe for the huge work she has☆☆☆




Thank you very much for all the sweet and heartwarming comments for my last post, my dear friends. They meant really a lot for me and gave me strength.  I couldn't stop writing this post and it is already past one in the morning p;)   
And see you soon in your blog.  Have a wonderful rest of the week everyone♬♬♬

I am so glad you had lots of lovely pictures with this post, my dear friend! They are stunning. And the owner of this residence must have a special appreciation for beauty to bring all this forth.

I'm so glad you and your friend got to go, and I'm thrilled you took the time to share this with us! Hope your week is wonderful!

Wow what a beautiful flower garden! And so huge! I've never heard of shimotsuke before but they are very pretty. I like the sitting area, reminds me of おだんご屋さん:-)
How nice of the owner to share shimotsuke with you! They look lovely in your home!
Thank you for sharing such beautiful photos. I look forward to seeing part 2!

To cudowne, że właściciel ogrodu pozwolił pospacerowac po ogrodzie i podziwiać piekne kwiaty, a szczególnie irysy. Pozdrawiam serdecznie.
It is wonderful that the owner of the garden allowed some walking in the garden and enjoy the beautiful flowers, especially irises. Yours sincerely.

Miyako those flowers are just beautiful...I know the iris, but have never seen such beautiful yellow ones either! The other flowers were new to me. Your pictures are fabulous as always. You are so right, that lady does have a big job to take care of those flower gardens. How nice of her to share them.

Your friend was so sweet to take you on a day off -- which you needed and deserved.

Hello Miyako, What a lot of blooms! The people must have help to maintain such lovely gardens! I planted Spiraea this year - I hope mine thrive like the ones in your photo.
