The perennial border.

I have decided, after visiting The Perennial Patch and seeing the owner Shirley Sprague's perennial gardens, my border needs to be widened a foot or two for some depth. I think that will be a new project for next year though as I am still trying to fill in what I do have. This is only our second year on our new property and I have been digging up and transplanting in different locations to get the look I want. The border was already in place when we moved in and I have a long way to go to have it look as full as I would like. I've added quite a few this year but they will not have much of a show until next year or the year after. Here is a picture of the length of the border and some of my favorite sections.

There are Sweet Peas growing behind the purple Liatris.
