What Plants Teach Us

A garden lesson from the Sunflower - be a volunteer. These beauties continue to show up year after year. 

Want to be outstanding all the time? 

This Japanese stewartia - Stewartia pseudocamellia teaches us to use our best features.

 Its stunning bark works diligently throughout every season.  

This specimen tree happens to be one of our favorites.

 It's not too late to plant a Japanese stewartia and if you look below,

there's one more reason.

 

The Japanese stewartia's beautiful blossom; it's an 'add-on' summer feature. 

Not too flamboyant - just enough to let you know it's here.


Moving on for a quick look at the edible garden. 

This Cubanelle Pepper is a newcomer for us this year. 

What can the Cubanelle pepper teach us? 

Try something new and mix up your garden interests, including your edibles. 

And if you like a bit of spice, this is supposedly one of the best peppers 

for giving things an extra kick.

Let's take a peek at perennials. 

This Siberian Catmint Nepeta sibirica 'Souvenir d' Andre Chaudron' 

teaches us it's not just about colorful blossoms. 

It is equally important to be hardy and long-blooming. 

And it can hold its own during a dry bout.

But back to colorful blossoms. 

Purple mixed with green make for two exquisite colors in the summer garden.  

And 'Souvenir d' Andre Chaudron's

long lasting blooms are perfect for the cut flower vases.

Wherever your path leads you, take in nature, sunshine and all the beautiful things on this earth. Our pot time can be limited but remember, there are many lessons we can learn from our plants.
