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. 🙂
