Summer Blooms in the Garden

Happy first day of summer! Later today here in the Northern Hemisphere, the sun will reach its highest point in the sky marking the annual summer solstice - the longest day and shortest night of the calendar year.

Early summer is such a wonderful time, especially at my farm, when the gardens are looking so lush and beautiful. My large flower cutting garden continues to burst with new blooms each day. This garden is quite large - it measures 150-feet by 90-feet, and in order to keep it looking its best, we're constantly weeding and watering, and then weeding again. Every season, I add a number of flowering plants to this collection. And now, it is so full of color - it has really developed into one of the most eye-catching areas of Cantitoe Corners.
