Earlier this summer my good friend, Terry, brought me some of her gorgeous perennials that she had divided from her yard. They are established here now and starting to bloom. This first picture is Rose of Sharon...I just love the delicate color combination.
This next plant is a Butterfly Bush....also in bloom. However, for some reason I always pictured a Butterfly Bush to have red blooms....maybe there are different varieties....am I way off base, Terry??
These are cosmos that I just scattered seeds this year. I really love this flower and they self seed sometimes for the following year. I would love to have an English garden with many, many perennials that just flowed in the breeze like these do.
