While fall and spring are my favorite seasons, in that order, I do love summer for all the gorgeous flowers everywhere! And naturally I’ve taken some photos of them. Plus I have photos of the garden as it was the first few days of July. So without further ado, please enjoy early summer blooms and plants.
First, let’s check in with the vegetable garden. All the plants are happy and growing.
healthy, growing garden!

I have so many photos of bee balm that I thought they deserved their own gallery.

Do you have a favorite summer flower? There are so many, it’s hard to choose but I do love the bee balm. And here I’ve displayed three different colors. I’ll be back soon with more photos of summer flowers. Do come back and take a look!
I have neglected my poor little blog :( Summer is just too busy for me. But I decided to put together a quick post of some of my favorite summer bloom photos. I’ll be back soon with at least one more post from my trip to Spain this past March. Stay tuned and I hope you enjoy these photos! First some from my walks around campus last month:
love the bee on that rose
some type of rudbeckia?
never have seen this one before

A handful from my garden:

One last gallery of photos I took yesterday at the Trial Garden on campus. There is more to learn about this garden for sure. But check out these beautiful things blooming now on campus:
doesn’t this look inviting?
wonder what kind of tree this is?
