Why Perennials

How have your views of gardening changed over the years? I had always had an appreciation for gardens and gardening, but my interest was in trees and shrubs, evergreens in particular because of our long drab winters.

I'll have to keep going back to the photos in case I missed something! You have a gorgeous garden. I didn't realize Hostas would get so large and lush. Just beautiful!

I agree Hurray! I tip my hat to you.

Love the tree in the bottom row of photos, too. Lots of character, there.
Laugh and the world laughs with you. Cackle maniacally and people back away from you slowly.

Evan: Love, Love, Love those Hosta! I rarely see Hosta growing down this far south. There is a variety called Sun Hosta growing at our little Botanical Gardens but even though it has "Sun" in it's name, it still wouldn't survive in full sun down here. I wish I had some shade to be able to grow them, they are such beautiful plants and I never knew they grew so big and lush! Your garden is really pretty ... great growing! Thumbs up
