More Garden Surprises

Several other things were in that bee and butterfly mix. I love the little flax flowers and the yarrow, which is growing in several of my beds now. I hope they all get well established. The lavender was a surprise from a few years ago. I planted it in one of the beds, but it ended up in a small flower pot. Likely moved by chipmunks or birds. It’s been wintering over just fine in that pot, but I should probably plant it.

Dianthus

The dianthus are getting past their prime, but they’re still pretty. The variety in colors amazes me. These came from a bee and butterfly mix I planted last spring, that didn’t grow until this year. They were a total surprise.

Rainy Day Garden

I don’t remember a colder spring. It’s June and I haven’t even been tempted to turn on the AC yet. I think the high today was around 65F. The garden is loving it.
