Pretty in Pink, Yellow, Orange
Labor Day may signal the end of summer for many, especially school children, but blooms remain plentiful and colorful in The Frog & PenguINN gardens.
The wildflower meadow is the most colorful now in full bloom. Coreopsis is the predominant flower here with yellow blooms . . .Coupled with various shades or orange . . .Butterflies, especially Eastern Yellow Swallowtails, are finding this a plentiful nectar source with up to a dozen fluttering by at once. Here on the VA eastern shore, we also still have summer-like temps and high humidity; the mosquito population remains very active.
Has summer come to an end for you ?
