The studio was dressed in paint but otherwise looked rather naked. I laid out and dug perennial beds. Along the path I planted lavender, geranium, rosemary and other delights. I was so looking forward to the lavender maturing but not one of the eight plants survived the brutal heat wave and extreme drought last summer.
One by one, I replaced them with marigolds and other things. A friend said that a perennial garden is never finished. This past year, I've learned what thrives (rosemary, geranium, salvia, anise hyssop) and what doesn't.
Here's the end of the first summer in October glory.
