Farewell to spring

The mix of mostly Californian late bloomers in the greenhouse.

Which has recently become a hot house with the nice warm summer weather.

This last clutch of flowers tends to signify the end of the "growing" season for a bulb grower. Yet, this group of mostly zeric bulbs also signifies that shortly the
"harvest" season will begin .

This also begins a great season in the garden as the flower beds really start to come on.

And the vegetable garden is loving the transitional weather with cool nights and hot days.

Cheers to a great summer and big harvest!
