Happiness is… gardening in summer. The warmth of the sun and the vibrant colors around you in summer make the season something to look forward to. You don’t have to go to the beaches or go overseas just to enjoy the season. You can just stay at home yet feel happy and productive.

One of the ways to make your summer enjoyable and productive is by tending your garden. Apart from making you feel satisfied, gardening also beautifies your surroundings. To make your garden a work of art, plant flowers that favor the summer. These flowers are vibrant and can really add aesthetic value to your home.

Here are some flowers that favor the summer sun.
