Friends in Flowers
This Lysmachia or Creeping Jenny came from one of my dear friends Susan Saunders. I worked for her landscaping business in Rhode Island for several seasons, many years ago, they were good times. Susan sent this large container full of plants up to me two summers ago. Each summer since I've neglected to replant the container but the bright green leaves of the Lysmachia poked through the bare dirt every spring after the snows ended. This year I finally gave it some companions. Thank you Susan, a summer in the garden doesn't go by where I don't think of you and the days we spent cutting back perennials along the coast.
