Sustainable Summer

Shady Grove

There are many ways to practice sustainable gardening in summer.  Planning ahead can create leafy environments, where plants, grouped together, and overseen by taller trees, create their own sustainability in summer.  This image was taken on a stately urban property which has it’s own recyclable water source, ensuring the areas that need it are well hydrated.  Watering is less necessary, if this kind of planning takes place, where the plants can support each other, as mentioned in David Suzuki’s book ‘Tree’ in a post a little further down.  A bit of forward planning can create less worry, and better sustainability in summer.

Urban Colours

Urban Colour

This spectrum coming from the sun came about twice in a week, once seeing it like this from the sun, and another time seeing it reflected in a water stream.  It’s amazing what you see once you start looking, the same natural wonders as can be found anywhere in the world, can be found in cities.  When we see a rainbow, the colours are exactly the same spectrum, also seen in oil/petroleum residues, and some detergent residues.  What is this phenomenon, a spectrum of colour like this, seen in a range of ways in urban places?
