All of our gardens are so lush right now due to the extreme amount of rain we have had this summer. In our eating garden, we have 4 different varieties of melon growing. Guests staying in late August and September are in for a fruit treat at breakfast. Our flower beds are also vibrant and I believe we have more butterflies visiting this year than ever before. It's a real treat to sit on the porch in one of the rocking chairs and watch the butterflies enjoy the nectar. And somewhere close by, there is a honey bee hive that is producing some sweet honey. The bees love the cone flowers! After the butterflies and bees have had their fill, the small birds will get to enjoy the seeds.
