20 years ago, I thought you were so dumb.
Why choose a bore, when options abound – delphinium! campanula! baptisia!
Three of each, please, in a cottage garden.
Now I see.
Your tiny chartreuse leaves – spring’s brightest tease. Your autumn bursts – glorious crescendo!
Your sturdiness and easy manner.
Older, practical me loves brilliant scarlet, maintenance-free you.
