Peak at the Perennial Border

Ive been spending the last week or so glued to the computer finishing my master's papers, but the beautiful sights of mid-may outside keep calling me for a break. I told myself I wouldn't post again until my paper is finished, but I couldn't resist... so here's a peak at the perennial border in all of its mid-may glory. I can't wait to have the chance to catch up on all the spring happenings...

"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.  Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.  The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves."  ~John Muir


  1. It looks lovely! Glad you took a break and could share with us. Good luck on your papers!

  2. Oh, gorgeous! No wonder you can't stay inside! What is that beautiful dark red plant? I want it! It is really eye-catching with that white. i guess I need them both! :O

  3. Holley, the red is Dianthus 'Heart Attack' and the white is Phlox 'Minnie Pearls', two of my faves!

    Alan, not too many deer around our garden, I've caught them only once... I guess its one of the benefits of living so close to downtown!

    Thanks for all the support!

  4. A spectacular showing of your perennial garden. And I love John Muir...great quote.

  5. Thanks for sharing the photos. Those reds are brilliant! That dianthus is aptly named. Good luck on your Masters!
