Let's go down recent memory lane to visit SUMMER! Gerry Saft, a self-proclaimed plant addict, knows how to have fun with color!
"I live on Long Island, New York and have been gardening for many years. Now that I am retired I've had a lot more time to devote to my small backyard where the chores seem never ending. But it is definitely a labor of love as all of you gardeners out there know. I started out years ago thinking I would use pinks, blues and purples throughout. As you can see, that's no longer the case. I am a flower "addict" and can't help buying whatever I like, no matter the color. There's just so much out there to love! In the last couple of years I've really fallen for daylilies. There are so many varieties and colors that I can never have enough. I would still like to plant more, but I'm running out of room. Hope you enjoy my "babies" as much as I do."
