Summer Images: Flowers and Weeds

06 2009 wild garden.jpg

Summer in the DC region is hot and steamy, meaning that everything that wants to grow does. I like how flowers abound in garden beds, and how sometimes the weeds to as well. I spent most of my childhood summers in Texas, which is hot, humid, but dry enough that weeds wilt and dry out during the summer, the dense growth of plants in Northern Virginia is remarkable to me, if the land is not tilled or maintained you find trees with thick undergrowth shrubs and bramble.
