Feels Like Summer

Summer has arrived and right on time. Literally the day of the solstice, June 21st the sun shone and has been here ever since. The garden makes me happy on warm summer days and it feels as if it's been a year since the joy was felt at such tangible levels. Here then is a simple tour of Chickadee Gardens towards the end of June. Textures and foliage color are at the top of my list for plant choices along with hardiness, water requirements (low) and value for wildlife.
