I can’t believe it’s already August. This summer is flying by! This summer we’ve spent a lot of time working on our landscaping and the flowers we’ve planted are looking lovely now and the garden is filled with bees and butterflies. In our Florida neighborhood Mr. MT Nest had a reputation as a landscape expert. Our lawn and garden were lush and beautiful and the neighbors liked to ask him for landscaping advice. He knew Florida plants well. But the mountains of North Carolina are a different matter.W e are both still learning about which plants do best in our area of North Carolina and determining what grows well in various parts of our property. I have always dreamed of growing varieties of flowers that wouldn’t survive in the hot Florida sun. We have been planting throughout the spring and early summer. Now the plants are at their peak and receiving the attention of myriad winged visitors who are feasting on their nectar. We are enjoying watching all these visitors.
Our lovely flowers are such a blessing! And the beautiful butterflies and bees that are visiting them are an added joy.
