Summer Dreams

Summer verbena, dream in the sun,

Go to the place where your dreams make you sing;

Allow them to fade if they don’t let you bloom,

Only embrace them if they give you wings!

    I miss my verbena! It was a wonderful purple that dressed the edge of our pond beautifully. We had an early winter that I think was just a little too harsh for it and it never came back. Great picture and verse!

      Boo hoo for you – here verbena is sold as an annual for pots! So I really don’t feel as sorry for you as I ought. 🙂 I will relent and be nice and say that I do know all too well what it is to lose plants to winter kill.

        I did actually know the risk I was taking when I planted it. We’re right on the edge of the “approved” zones for perennials. I was just holding out hope!

        And you never know until you take a risk! I have risked poorly over the years – but I have also risked well. (I have purchased a stunning variety of expensive ‘annuals’, too!) 🙂
