It was the best of times,
it was the worst of times.
Some of the prettiest foliage in my garden is in the vegetable garden, where the cold-loving green leafies and herbs are having a field day. And some of the worst looking foliage is on the perennial shrubs that were leafing out with tender new growth before our last fierce cold snap. The salvias and boxwood were hit particularly hard.
Thanks to Pam Penick at Digging for hosting Foliage Follow-Up on the day after Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day, to give foliage plants their well-deserved due.
