PURE AS GOLD!

Standard

Perennials are my favourite! They are the pure essence of gardening, it seems to me.

The continual reappearance of green plant growth after months of winter is a wonder of nature, to me. The blooms that follow throughout the summer are a refreshing tonic on hot summer days.

Particularly, I enjoy the day lilies. These ones with the golden blooms are so cheerful to see. The pure tones of their blooms are amazing!

They also remind me of a favourite poem, Nothing Gold can Stay by American poet, Robert Frost. His words have a heartening, pure tone to them. Here is a link to The Outsiders film in which the poem was quoted.

Enjoy your weekend!
