Centerville River Cottage Garden plantingTraditional Landscape, Boston

A traditional annual border composed of French marigolds, blue Hawaii ageratum, white alyssum and dusty miller edges a cottage-style perennial bed. Yellow tree roses in containers and dinner-plate dahlias add summer-long color to this Cape Cod garden.

This is an example of a small traditional partial sun backyard landscaping in Boston for summer. —  Houzz

Take a Nature BreakThey say nature is the best healer, and you’ll want to spend some time outdoors today. Before the sun gets too hot, take a stroll in your garden or other nearby place where there’s greenery and flowers. Breathe in the fresh air, feel the sun on your skin (remember to wear a hat and sunscreen) and listen to the birds, the breezes and the world outside. Find a landscape contractor to freshen up your yard

Midseason CareStaking. Many tall, top-heavy flowers like dahlias and sunflowers will require staking as they grow for extra support and to keep stems straight for cutting. Keep garden stakes and twine or plant ties on hand.

Love the comment about nature is the best Healer. Flowers, gentle breeze, the fresh clean mountain air, breathing through the abdomen, walking through the garden, emerald green pastures.
