A Closer Look at Perennial Foliage

By Sharon
June 16, 2013

It's that time of year again: blooms, blooms and more blooms! And every year just like clockwork, we wake up, grab our coffee and our cameras and race to see the newest blooms in our gardens. If there are no new blooms, we drop our heads and slowly walk back inside to wait for tomorrow. But wait a minute; there's something we shouldn't miss! Let's take a closer look at foliage.

Thanks for the reminder.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Most excellent article, Sharon! Hurray!

The joy I feel from my perennial gardens each day, and at any given moment, is largely based on the appearance of their assorted foliage.


Your "accidents" are truly lovely. Thumbs up

Timely article, as everything blooming here has begun to shut down for a bit from the extreme summer heat. Thanks for reminding us that there's always something beautiful in the garden, if you just look for it.

Hi Chickhill,

Welcome to ATP and since you are new, you have some exciting days ahead of you. With every click of your mouse you are going to find something new and beautiful, as well as informative and enjoyable. It's so nice that you are here and really great that you already love it.

Wait another week till the weather settles down (I hope) and then coffee and camera will be an every morning event here at my house! You too, I hope!

Enjoy Smiling
