However, I was feeling down last month about my garden, and missed it. This month end is my garden one year anniversary. When I look back one year progress of my garden, I feel quite happy how much I have accomplished in one short year. And my garden also simply put its best show to celebrate this milestone month!
So here comes my favorites of June!!!

Favorite warm colors: Warm colors are best for use to brighten any flower bed, or garden corners. Here are some of mine.

Favorite plants combination: I planted the pink vinca in front of the variegated devil's backbone early this year. Now they all grew fully, and created a very nice combination in the flower bed. Love a beautiful garden combo created by pure luck!
