Garden Questions: Annuals or Perennials — which do you prefer?

Part of our on-going series of gardening questions…

Ah, the question that faces all gardeners, which is better in their garden — annuals or perennials?

For me, I prefer perennials. In my role as a “lazy gardner”, I like plants that take care of themselves. I especially love bulbs the come up year-after-year. Right now I am watching paperwhite push out of the soil for their annual show and reveling in the fact that I didn’t’ have to do much of anything to get that show. That said, I do plant more bulbs each year, so there is a bit of work involved, but the benefit far outweighs the little bit of effort.

So, chime in with your own opinion!
