I love how some of the seed catalogs have color schemes with flowers that go good together. Then you have a beautiful color pallet that looks stunning.
The above Lady Slippers grow wild in this area. They are so elegant looking. You can buy seeds to grow them in a Vermont wildflower seed catalog.
I like sunflowers and they have all sizes that you can buy seeds for. The above is a shorter version which is nice. The huge sunflowers look nice along a fence.
The mid-size sunflower is my favorite. It looks beautiful in a bouquet to have on your summer table. A local farm-stand always has them in the summer.
A must have in a summer garden is peonies. They come up every year and are just beautiful.
The above kitchen garden is what I totally love. I would put all kinds of herbs and salad greens in it. Plus radishes, cucumbers, carrots and tomatoes.
Then a little waterfall with lots of water-plants.
I think that it would be neat to have a pizza oven planned into a space. A container garden near it with all the pizza herbs.
A summer porch overlooking beautiful landscaped gardens.
A fire pit and summer chairs among the landscaping.
And that is a few things that are fun to plan for summer.
