It may be hot out, but these flowering shrubs are giving it their all. Chosen for their ability to reliably bloom for a long period during the hottest months, these shrubs will keep your garden looking cool and pretty year after year.
The last Mourning Dove fledged the other day, eliciting mixed emotions in me. My “growing season” begins before spring blooms, it starts when I see, and hear, birds in the yard. I start most days watching them preparing their nests and eventually, tending to their clutch.
