Shades of Yarrow
But last summer, I gave in and bought myself a perennial yarrow plant. I'd been admiring these in other people's gardens and I really wanted one of my own.
When I bought my yarrow, it was kind of scraggly looking and hung on for dear life in a flimsy plastic pot that was about five inches wide. This spring it settled nicely into its new home, and now it's about three feet tall by three feet wide. An explosion of yellow!
What I can't convey through the blogosphere is its wonderful fragrance. Find yourself a jar of honey and take a whiff. The leaves and blossoms smell somewhat like honey.
Here I've put a few cuttings with my blue sage flowers. A pretty combination, isn't it?
