Why I love perennials...

Coming home from my work the other day, I realized another reason I love perrenials. Onec you do something to them, it stays done...for a nice long time. (SMILE)

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the trimming and cleanup I did on the the azaleas and juniper in the front garden. When I pulled into the driveway the other day, it still looked great...and it will continue to look good for almost a year.

No mowing the lawn every week. No weeding the vegetable garden. No planting and re-planting annuals every couple of months.

Sure, there is other work to do there...weeding the pathways, dead-heading the roses and trimming the fountain grass, but overall, it is very low maintenance.

Something that is always appreciated this busy time of year.
