I usually start rearranging my garden as soon as it turns green. lol. But I agree that now is the time to see that some plants are larger than I realized they would be. Sometimes Alaskan summers do strange things to otherwise well-behaved plants. And the history part was really interesting. I had not thought about carrying a flower about the garden to see what might make interesting combinations which is strange as my eye spots them occuring sort of naturaly for pictures taking opportunities. Thanks for a great article.

Mstella, like you I rearrange my perennial borders mentally just about every day! I used to be unable to resist moving/dividing things no matter what the weather, once I had a bee in my bonnet. I learned to be more careful after losing plants or having them take a long time to recover. Now I keep a list on paper, along with the season I should make changes, and that helps me stay realistic. Happy gardening, and enjoy the rest of your Alaskan summer!
