To paraphrase an old tune…“June is bustin’ out all over!” It is indeed evident as we look around the countryside at the lush and delicious shades of green, beautiful trees, and blossoming shrubs. A kaleidoscope of colorful flowers are evident in our neighbors’ gardens. Truly a spectacular time of year!
Such are nature’s gifts here in the Northwest Corner and environs despite the shortness of our “green” season. We have had little rainfall to keep plantings happy so it has become imperative to water, best done in early evening. Even the plants that grace our patios and decks need that special attention on a daily basis.
Of importance too is keeping the lawn looking well. It is one thing to keep the lawn mowed, but the battle of the weeds, especially crab grass, is a challenge. In fact, it has become an issue big enough to need professional help...a significant battle of summer! The stuff is tough to defeat and requires a call to professional landscape caretaker/gardeners.
