The merry month of roses and "Tour for a cure"

Hello dear blogging friends and readers and welcome to Boxwood cottages rose garden in the merry month of June!

In June my garden is at it's peak of glory and I don't think it can get any better than now where all my roses are in full bloom and Eden rose 85 and Constance Spry are having a feast beside and on my rose arc:

As always you can click on all my pictures and than click again on the orange button in the left down side of the photos to enlarge them in their full size if you like to see more details, which I recommend highly for example for the photo below:

Here is a close up of my darling Eden rose 85:

and another close up this time of my frilly "Augusta Luise" a very beautiful scenting rose:

although my white peonies "Boule de Neige" where blooming for the last two week and I got this close up where I think it looks as if it is lit by the sun, it is really glowing:

Another glowing rose is growing in a huge pot on my deck now, it is David Austins deep pink-reddish "Wenlock":

This soft beauty below is called "Bremer Stadtmusikanten" and it is my hometown rose:

My "Rokoko" rose is also in bloom together with my Clematis "Ville de Lyon":

I love when the morning sun sends her beams in my garden:

The historic rose "Louise Odier" was a gift from me to my neighbor's birthday last year, but luckily I can enjoy her from my garden too:

Most of my Alliums are fading now but the Globemasters still look great:

Here is my "Leonardo da Vinci" rose together with a pot of dianthus and a hanging basket with purple petunias and other beauties:

My clematis "Piilu" is also in full bloom now and very much enjoyed by the bumblebees:

My "Allium Globemaster" in their full glory, they are now bigger than my garden balls out of glass:

New to my garden this year came this gorgeous purple "Campanula punctata":

Below is "Allium Christophii" showing of her blloms like pink metallic stars inbetween the grennish-yellow Alchemillas:

Gorgeous pink foxgloves are growing right in the middle of my rose arc:

A pot of soft pink Diascia (in German its called "Elfensporn") in a pot in front of my deck, the Lavendula behind it is just starting to bloom as well:

View from the deck down in my lil garden:

Here is a view of my garden taken from my roof top window, where my studio is located which I have neglected a bit while the weather was so good (click on photo to enlarge):

Sky blue "Veronica teucrium" (Großer Ehrenpreis) is blooming near the feet of my blue trellis and is giving the needed shade to the Clematis Cardinal rouge which is climbing up the trellis:

And lastly a shot of my catnip "Nepeta Six Hills Giant"

I dedicate this post to a special blogger named Deena who has invited bloggers world wide to a virtual garden tour (see her banner in my side bar) called "Tour for the cure" and who is hopefully winning her battle against breast cancer she's fighthing right now!!!! I'm sending her best wishes and positive thoughts from Germany!
