Wow, your Yarrow is making leaps and bounds this year. I really like it in my garden as well. It has lovely flowers that start out one color and fade nicely. The foliage is so lacy and fernlike.

I agree that yarrow has an old-fashioned cottage garden feel. I planted some Artemisia several years ago, and it also had that feel. I wonder if it's the ferny, feathery look they have that brings ottage gardens to mind--or if it's something else. It's hard to pinpoint!
