My tuberous begonia basket

Pat O'Brien has done a lot with her two year old perennial garden!

"I would like to share the photos below of my perennial garden from last year.  I live in Woodstock, IL and started my first  perennial garden 2 years ago.  My garden consists of a 60 foot long rock wall and and I am having a lot of fun with it. I am now retired and have a lot a time to spend gardening and I truly enjoy it."
