Los Colores

This week the first sunflower bloomed, and the gladiolas entered peak season in the Beach Flats Garden.  Tomatoes and tomatillos opened their first flowers in the heat of the sun, awaiting winged pollinators that give the plant a reason to grow fruit.  Nasturtiums were joined by poppies in low places of the sandy beach soil.  All around the songs of birds could be heard, serenading the garden with the songs of summer.
