The summer heat is upon us, but don’t worry, Garden volunteer Georgiann Keller walks us through where we can find some of the latest blooms in the shadier, cooler areas of the garden in her latest What’s Blooming audio. Some of the most stunning blooms can be found right in the atrium. Plus, find out where Piper the Peacock was most recently seen hanging out!
