Not all the perennials came back this year. I knew it would take a few tries to see what grows in weird WI weather. Some time in August last year I purchased two beautiful apricot blanket flowers – stunning. However, they are apparently not very hardy and did not return at all, much to my dismay. Our sun perennial garden, as a result, has been rather sparse and *someone* got crazy with weeding and accidentally pulled out some flowers. Ahem. Therefore, more had to be filled in to replace the ones that were lost. Here are the new additions:

Then, these are some that were put in about mid spring and have finally bloomed!

I think these are asters, but I really have no idea! Woops!

Now my fingers are crossed that everything survives the winter! As much as I enjoy picking out new flowers, I just want everything to live, be fruitful and multiply! A big thank you as well must go to my mother-in-law who spent the weekend with us and weeded around our house and gardens!
