GARDEN ANGEL

My sister has
a little saying about perennial gardens that she rhymed off
the other night..

The 1st year they crawl,
The 2nd year they walk,
The 3rd year they run!

This shade garden that my angel hosts is about 3 years old. I planted the tulips last fall. They were a bag of mixed. I love the splash of color that they bring to this little corner of my yard.

ohh, love it...the pic AND the poem, so true! A garden is a constant work in progress, very humbling I think, no matter how you plan it, it takes a life of its own.fpnay

OH HOW TRUE THAT IS.

Mine are running away faster than I can keep up.

And I love you little Angel.

Your shady nook is really pretty!
I remember when you began that corner...doesn't take long to fill in. I was just outside pruning my Honeysuckle. It has also become huge. Happy gardening.

that's so true, what your sister said. i planted one on my front lawn three years ago and this year, it has gone completely crazy. my delphiniums are huge! and irises, daffodils like never before, mounds and mounds of phlox and lupins -- it's great!
