that’s where we are, summer-wise! Full of everything with more to come. Zinnia, sunflowers, gladiolas and celosia are just getting started, along with the summer “it” girl, lisianthus. We wait all July for her to show up. I’m also very excited about crocosmia, a funkly little red-orange flower on a swooping stem with a sword like, long lasting foliage. crocosmia(image courtesy of Gardening KnowHow.com

This summer, local flowers are filling CSA orders and shelves at Takoma Park Food Coop .  Come find something pretty!
