Beautifying a City Corner

Living in a small city, I am often discouraged at the wasted green space in the medians throughout town. Having recently purchased my own home, with it came two fairly large medians. I quickly got tired of mowing, so Wildflowers were the perfect answer!

Planting a Garden with Wings

Butterflies are one of the most amazing creatures. They have four distinct life cycle stages–egg, larvae, pupae, and adult. They go from egg to caterpillar then make it to adult as a butterfly. In order to plant a successful butterfly garden, you have to plant food plants, also known as host plants, and you must plant nectar plants for the adults.

Fill your Garden in with Annuals!

This time in the season, much of the garden has filled in and we know what will be growing where. Now is the perfect time to identify the empty spots in your garden and fill them with Summer-Blooming Bulbs such as Dahlias, Gladiolus, Calla Lilies and more. Added bonus: If you are in Hardiness Zone 8 or above, these Bulbs will come back year after year in your garden!

A Meadow Habitat in Washington, DC

I visited DC last weekend and was not only entertained by the multitude of interesting buildings and museums the city has to offer, but also thrilled at how far along their growing season was! We are Hardiness Zone 5 here in Vermont, so it was amazing to see everything in bloom in early June. I snapped a few photos of a “Meadow Habitat” planted near the National Mall and wanted to share them with you all. I hope you enjoy!
