Take a walk through the early summer garden.

Even though the weeds are winning the war in my landscape, I take a few moments every day to walk through my landscape enjoying fresh blooms, plant combinations that work, and vignettes I got right. Why don’t you walk along with me today?

The hummingbirds are as happy as I am that Salvia ‘Black & Blue’ started blooming.
