Just wandering around the garden, pondering blooms and considering plant combinations. These poppies are joining forces with the lupine to take over the front garden.
Wallflower Erysimum 'Apricot Twist' plays nice with the cool shade of Catmint Nepeta 'Six Hills Giant.' The wallflower I added to the parking strip garden because I know it will tolerate the intolerable conditions out there. It's also spread around other areas out front for a bit of cohesion. The Catmint has self seeded all over the place so I selectively remove some and leave others like this one.
Iris transplanted a couple years ago are loving their new home under the shade of the apple tree. I had considered digging up some of these earlier in the spring and now glad I didn't. They make a nice little "wall" and if you look closely you see the honeysuckle creeping into the mix.
