Solomon's Song and the June Garden

This David Austin Rose has a scent as lovely as its flower.

A love poem found in The Song of Solomon (in the Bible) along with some photos from the June garden:
Larkspur is a favorite reseeding annual. 

"Arise my love, my beautiful one, and come away, 
Tanacetum parthenium has multitudes of tiny daisies.

for behold, the winter is past
Stella D'Oro daylily with catmint in the background

The flowers appear on the earth, 
This vivid bellflower, Campanula glomerata adds a splash of color. 

the time of singing has come,
Heritage, a David Austin roses, has a charming beauty.

and the voice of the turtledove
is heard in our land.

This unnamed daylily has a interesting form.

The fig tree ripens its figs,
and the vines are in blossom;
Verbena bonariensis adds grace to garden with its swaying display.

Hydrangea shrub probably needs more water than we have here in Kansas. 

they give forth fragrance.

Arise, my love, my beautiful one,
and come away

Love this allium as it nods and sways in the wind.

Song of Solomon 2:10b-13 (ESV)
