June Garden

 Every neighborhood has one: a favorite garden that encourages you to walk that extra block or two. Stop for a few minutes and enjoy the colors and textures. Notice the birds and butterflies that have also found it. Gardens such as this are nurtured by people with the greenest of thumbs, earned through trial and error, careful research, and the diligence of daily weeding. This particular gardener has the eye of an artist, mixing colors, considering the height and foliage of each plant, carefully planning for a succession of blooms. Right now, her front yard is a painting by Monet come to life, a source of beauty and inspiration.
