After days of rain my annual beds were looking pretty sad. My petunias were saturated and eaten by slugs. All of my flowers were suffering, even the couple perennials I had planted. You can see the delphiniums were broken and hanging upside down.
I ripped everything out and replaced them with all perennials.
Fortunately, my favorite nursery still had a good selection.
I left my sweet potato vines in place since they are growing so well.
And what is that I see at the end of my garden path?
In typical Chow Chow fashion, she is reluctant to step on a wet patio.
She immediately heads out front hoping it isn't raining there.
I'm anxious to see how the perennials will look when they bloom.
I planted about 20 of them in 2 beds.
There are coneflowers, asters, foxgloves and shasta daisies to name a few.
