Perennial gardens

The rhythms of perennials are a primary enchantment.  I'm not a fussy gardener, nor do I have time or inclination to spend on grooming and pruning.  But it's lovely to see them reemerge and flower each year.

The main perennial border in the Piedmont, in spite of total neglect, looked quite lovely yesterday.  The Rudbeckia maxima is finally looking robust, and makes a nice contrast with the buddleia, oakleaf hydrangea, Asclepia tuberosa,  and Salvia guaranitica.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
