It’s tough to pick my favorites this year… so many things have done so well. I’m like the “very old man” in Wanda Gag’s book, Millions of Cats. This old man goes out to find the perfect cat for his wife, and ends up in a place where there are “hundreds of cats, thousands of cats, millions and billions and trillions of cats.” He decides to only take the prettiest, and “Before he knew it, he’d chosen them all.”
Me too. If I get started on picking the prettiest and the best, before you know it, I’ll have chosen every single plant in my garden.
So I’ve chosen just a few, and decided that this year I’d focus on one perennial, and why it’s been a fantastic addition to the garden from April through September.
