How to get into summer’s spirit? Eating tangy vegetable salads, cooling you down with ice cream, sipping refreshing drinks and cocktails, or immersing yourself into crystal water of the sea? All sound great. Growing summer flowers and plants should be also in the “to-do” list. It’s not all because I love gardening or have a longer vocation in summer. Growing seasonal plants makes your garden much prettier and you can also use them.
And, here are 10 flowers and plants that bloom all summer. I tried some with my garden last summer and it kept me satisfied. I grew Shasta daisies, and it actually brighten my garden. The green color of the leaves and yellow and white colors of the flower do the work. They can grasp your eyes from the outside of the house. Can’t wait trying it this summer!
