Some dislike their growing habit. Their weedy-looking disposition.
All I know is . . . they stuck by me this season, from beginning to end, as my time in the garden greatly faltered. Cheerful. Resilient. Up for time as a cutting flower. Or a backdrop flower. And sometimes making plans to reseed and make another appearance - same spot, same time - next year.
What plant kept you company this season - through the thick and thin?
