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!
