I did a post the other day about the edibles that I've managed to grow near the house this year, so I thought for posterity I would just show the front flowerbed and how that's coming on.
It seems to have been planned out with a very pink and purple colour scheme and most of the plants that are still coming through are following this trend. Quite coincidentally the things I've added, apart from the daisies, have all followed this pattern.
I love lavenders and am slowly building up my collection again after leaving ALL my plants behind at our rented place, we simply couldn't fit everything in the truck or trailers in our many journeys to Wales. I just buy the odd one when I spy a good variety at the garden centre. I will always, always, always make room for a Lavender or Rosemary plant :-)
There's a lot of the plants that I don't know the name of .... and do you know, that doesn't bother me in the slightest. If it looks pretty, is useful for the bees and more or less looks after itself it's very welcome in my garden whatever it's called.
Of course lurking further along the bed is the bit we never got round to weeding and mulching, as it is currently awash with a giant lavender plant that the bees love I am not disturbing it at the moment .... well that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
