Summertime is not usually a prime time for garden tours.  It is HOT, the splashy tulips and azaleas, the graceful dogwoods and redbuds – all have faded to green.  In fact, summer landscapes are often just GREEN with a few slashes of daylilies, crape myrtles and potted annuals.  I will show you how to make your summer landscape exciting!   These pictures were taken in my garden from June through September.

Summer is lush!
