The Joy of Perennials

    I really like perennials.  Perennials are plants that you don’t have to plant every year, once they are in the ground, they just come up every year.  I don’t know the name of the flower you see in the photo above, but forty-five years ago, the previous owners of our property, planted them and every year, these small white and blue flowered plants (about 4-5 inches, 10-12cm tall) appear in our lawn early in the spring, before the grass has a chance to grow.
    This year they must have found conditions especially attractive, because they are more prevalent and have spread over a wider area of the yard than in previous years.
