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.

There are finally a few things blooming in my garden. I think this may be it for the summer, though, because literally nothing else is growing. Everything I planted from seed came up, then… Nothing… Two months later, they’re still all tiny little seedlings. I have no idea why they’re stunted, but this year was not a good garden year.
I did not plant columbine. I don’t know where this one came from, because it’s in a bed on the opposite side of the patio from where the established columbine is. That columbine didn’t come up at all this year, but this one popped up in October. I love columbine, so I’m not complaining. I just hope it had enough time to get well established before it freezes completely.
It was finally cold enough to put on Thomas’ coat.
The sky was pretty impressive, ahead of last night’s storm. We got good rain, too. And finally! Something bloomed in my garden! This year has been terrible. I lost all my columbine, as well as my coral bells. I may have lost my wild geranium. The hostas are super skimpy this year and didn’t bloom. Same with the irises. But I have a million day lilly buds, so those should bloom soon, if the deer don’t eat them.
