We are heading into the official last weeks of summer, and the late season blooms are continuing to join the party. There are prolific bloomers throughout the Garden, from the white blooms on the snowdrop anemone and Rose of Sharon, to the beautiful blue blooms on the plumbago. And if you’re missing the butterflies in SOAR, don’t worry, there are many butterflies fluttering about in the Garden right now too. Take a listen to Georgiann Keller’s latest audio blog below to find out more.
