Rainy days, warm nights.

The favorite annual to
   have in our gardens.

WHY FARMERS MARKETS?

Where you find local, hand grown

FINALLY

White dogwoods
are in bloom.
My favorite flowering tree.

Snowy white flowers in May.
Rich green foliage in summer.
Bright red leaves in the fall.
And red berries in winter,
relished by birds.
