Plan your garden so you have some foundation plants that will be there through all the seasons. The annuals of spring and summer won't always live through a hot summer. Likewise, some of the perennials that bloom so beautifully in spring and fall will die back in both summer and winter.

It's always nice to have ongoing flowers or greenery in place. Just a bit of asking/researching will sure go a long way to meet that end, eh? (Not that I have it down pat!)
Thanks for the tip, Bubbles!

|You're right Susie and Shoe, there needs to be background structure to the garden to give it structure regardless of the season. Thanks for your comments. Sandi|
