Summer is here, with lush shades of green in landscapes and natural areas throughout The Morton Arboretum. Flowers can be found in garden areas, including the Ground Cover Garden on the East Side and the Fragrance Garden, Four Seasons Garden and Joy Path gardens near the Thornhill Education Center on the West Side.
When you mow the lawn, make the most of it by leaving the grass clippings where they fall.
