Spent a little time tending the parkway garden this morning, and among other things, propped up a stem of this veronica that had fallen over. I try to avoid staking, planting thickly instead, but some bits aren’t as filled out as I’d like, so needs must.
It’s tricky in a perennial garden where some plants have withered away in their season, trying to make sure there’s enough there to hold up the ones that need it!
You can see these veronica stems that are pointing sideways now; they were almost flat on the ground a little while ago. I’m hoping they’ll decide to start pointing up again, to match their neighbor, but if not, oh well. Still pretty. With daylilies.
