Summer Colors In Baltimore



There is an August challenge hosted by Belinda Spillman   "Summer is a very special time for many.  For those of us who live in states with 4 defined seasons, the sight of beautiful blooms and crops is a huge treat.  Fall and winter comes way too early....and everything turns brown again until the first leaves of Spring.'




If it were spring in Baltimore, I could easily share the azaleas, black-eyed Susans, tulips and cherry blossoms.



Right now, in August, the lawns, shrubs and trees are thick, lush and very green.

I have looked at my yard and my listings and all I see is green. Very few flowers with colors that are not done by the various association landscapers.

So I did take a few photos of these colorful neighborhood entrances. In addition I decided to show how green comes in a variety of shades.



The natural earth tones of my rock garden is a different kind of beauty and has wonderful colorings.

And this evening I noticed this plant outside my front door with a few leaves changing colors. Guess Autumn is around the corner?



 If you are looking for an area that has all four beautiful seasons...check out Baltimore!
