When most people think of "gardens" . . . they think of "flowers." And, yeah . . . flowers are usually the showpieces of any garden. Beautiful . . . but short-lived and fleeting.
(And, in the case of my peonies this year, VERY short-lived.)
The real workhouse of any garden, though, is the foliage.
I plan my gardens . . .
and I purchase my plants . . .
oftentimes, just for the foliage!
So many greens!
So many textures!
And not a flower in sight!
Just plain foliage. . .
is never plain!
