Garden adventures, thoughts and ideas…

First day of summer! And it’s been a great one so far – warm days, cool nights. The early spring rains we all complained about have spun their magic on the gardens; they’re looking better than ever this year. The silverlace has taken off and is already blooming and the honeysuckle vine is full of bright orange blossoms. The two little hummingbirds are back and the orioles have decided to call this yard home for the season – remember to keep plenty of water around for the birds over the summer and grow plants with berries and nectar to help keep them fed.
