It's flower time, finally!


Gardens in June are bursting into glorious bloom, although the early spring gave many of us fits. The oak trees on my acre yard in Mentor dropped thousands (millions?) of acorns last fall, foiling our barefoot forays onto the patio. So now I've got a forest of oaks threatening to grow and must get to pulling up those seedlings before I have to use a chain saw.
I'd be pretty intimidated opening my garden to strangers, but the Madison Garden Club has recruited those who have some of the area's nicest gardens for its June 26 show. I talked to them for a story that's running on Monday and filled it with some of their tips for other gardeners.The story also will run with a video of my own garden which is pitiful by comparison but a place we love in the summer.
The photo here is not me in my garden (I wish!) but was taken in Crested Butte Colorado a few years back when we attended the mid-July wildflower festival Wildflowers in the surrounding mountains grow in such abundance that folks come from all over the world to study them. The expected columbines are found there but many are flowers I couldn't identify, including fields where they actually grow chin high.
