It's Summer

Toads are singing. I can walk in and out of the house without changing more than my shoes. The lawn is covered with beautiful Veronica, Violets and Dandelions. We'll hold off a bit on the mowing while we enjoy the flowers. I got my first glimpse of Hummingbirds yesterday and Wood Thrushes showed up two days ago. All kinds of garden plants are chiming in, including this Bleeding Heart.

Bill and I couldn't resist buying a couple of woodland perennials from The Plantsman (whose website I can't locate at the moment.) And these plants from Little York Plantation for the pots on the deck. I don't have much success with roses in the garden but I think these in pots will provide as much pleasure - at least for this season.
