who needs flowers?

At the Home Depot recently, I was approached by three or four people with gardening questions (it must be the dirty fingernails and the pen in my hair), and I told a woman to forget about flowers if she had a fully shaded yard and to start thinking about foliage.  I wish I’d had the picture above to show her (she clearly needed convincing).  But, why have a row of struggling, tired-looking impatiens, when you could have vigorous, glorious ferns, ginger, ladies mantle and hosta?!


Love to hear what you think!
