a few months from now.....

If  you are a parent, March can be a month for making summer plans. The school and camp enrollment forms are probably due and folks are beginning to search through the calendar for the best potential summer vacation week.

These pictures are of new growth from perennial clumps of black-eyed susans.  I was surprised to see them so far out of the ground this time of year, but their location is in a very sunny and sheletered spot between the two buildings of Duke's Fitzpatrick Center . They are part of a perennial border that is a useful display of  low-maintenance plantings....plants like these are just the kind of thing you might cherish later on this summer when you need to go out of town for a week.
