Mid June Perennial Show

I garden with perennials. If there was a support group for perennial lovers, I’d be on the board.

I am always amazed that they go dormant in the winter, survive under months of snow cover, and then return like a good friend to astonish me with their beauty once again.

To maintain as many perennials beds as I do, it requires a lot of hours repositioning, deadheading, and weeding. Oh those weeds, they take no pity on the humble gardener.

The reward for all that hard work is that when June arrives, it brings out some of the heavy hitters both in the beauty, fragrance, and foliage departments.

Perennial gardens are really hitting their stride. Lucky us. 🙂

    I just love seeing all of your beautiful flowers and thesalemgarden is right — you would/should be president. Hmmm maybe you should start the group? In your free time of course! Thanks for sharing all the pretty flowers.
