Beautiful Summer Garden

Posted Jul 22 2013 11:01pm
A spring garden is probably the easiest to achieve.  You have rain and cooler temperatures.  Come summer, heat, hail and dry weather can make summer gardens a bit of a challenge.  The trick is picking the right plants for the right place.  That usually involves some “trowel and error”.  Visiting local gardens and garden tours can help you make note of what is blooming now.  I am always a bit amused that what is blooming at the time becomes the favorite flower.  Here are some of my favorites IMG_4828
I have learned to use drought tolerate plants in harder to reach areas.  Daylilies have thick fat roots that take some drought.
