Our backyard transition continues as mid summer flowers begin to bloom and early summer flowers fade away. Fourth of July fireworks and jet flyovers give way to nature's red, white and blues.

Nature's camouflage in our backyard
What can be sweeter than flowers and bunny rabbits on a summer morning!
One in a million
In July in Vermont,
Chicory is more common than a blue moon.
Sun shines through fences
look like bumblebees on steroids.
Stop not only to look,
but listen as well,
for in July in Vermont,
Petrified birds are seldom heard.
And apple trees talk if you listen.
So come to Vermont,
and sit a spell.
Try some fresh local organic heirloom produce,
Pair up with someone you love
and discover the many colors of Vermont summer flowers that draw pollinators for miles.
Come to Vermont and bring your friends,
than Stop, Look, and Listen
to Vermont flowers and critters,
and know why we volunteer to
keep the State Green and Clean.
