It seems like just a few days ago we could hear the sounds of the Spring Peepers and the frogs announcing the arrival of the spring season. In our woodlands the Trillium graced our hillsides and the flowering trees and colorful shrubs performed their dance of color in our landscapes and along our highways.

Last week I sat in the freshening cool air of evening to see the dance of the Fireflies calling for their mates and lighting up the night. It’s hard to believe the summer yellow Golden Rod along with purple Iron Weed and my favorite, lavender Joe Pye, are ready to bloom and color our fields. Not to be outdone are the Sunflowers and Black-eyed Susan that add such grace and beauty to the summer landscape.
