The spring rains have made my garden thrive. This  bed contains flowers of Nasturtium, Larkspur, Coneflower, Yarrow, and Red Yucca, to name a few. The Red Yucca, is one of the new varieties called Brakelights.

Nasturtium 'Tip Top Alaska Red'


I decided to plant a new variety of nasturtium this year.  I got the seeds from Select Seeds. They are growing amongst some white and purple Alyssum. I'm pretty pleased with this combo.

Kelly's Path

I dedicated this part of my garden to my friend Kelly a few years ago.The blindingly bright Golden Oregano, I know, would bring a smile to her face, if she were here. I think of her every time  I walk down this path.
