Everything in Bloom
I know it isn't true, but it almost seems like every perennial in the gardens are in bloom at this time of year. The days are still warm, but getting shorter and the evenings are starting to cool off. Soon it is the best time of the year for planting new shrubs and perennials in our climate, other than tropicals, so I have been taking inventory, noting what is doing well, what isn't and where I need to fill in gaps. Some of those gaps will be filled with divisions or transplants, but there will certainly be a few trips to the nursery.
