You may remember seeing pictures of my big perennial border. This was taken earlier this spring. I love the way it looks when everything has turned green, the mulch is fresh, and the weeds are virtually non-existent!
Some of my favorites, in full bloom...
It's been an eye-opening summer.
I'm getting "too old" for all the work that it takes...beautiful as it may be. I've had some very, very kind friends and family who have come and cared for my garden and perennials this late summer and fall...and I'm very thankful for them. However, I need to make some changes in the expectations that I put on myself. The thought of spreading six to eight scoops of mulch next spring seems overwhelming, if not impossible.
We'll see...maybe I'll have a huge perennial giveaway in the spring. Put in your orders!
