I ran straight to my desk, grabbed the camera and out the door I was, snapping photos of all the showy June flowers all around my front yard. June flowers - yellow and red canna Another pond plant that has been a pure delight ever since I planted it is Pontederia Cordata or Pickerel Rush – blooming and growing new buds faster than I’ve been able to count them. I just adore the color of the blooms!
