Such is life, as a gardener
For garden enthusiasts, the return of a perennial plant is much like the return of an old friend each year, a reunion of sorts. Same time, same place and nothing much has changed, at least with the plant! Dependable. Reliable. Something to count on. Something to look forward to. And, their return is not as long-lived as the annual which blooms all summer and into fall; perennials will bloom for three or four weeks and it is their short stay that makes them even more attractive and once they are gone, we begin to anxiously await their return. Such is life, as a gardener!
