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."
