In the spring, the candytuft takes center stage.
As the candytuft starts fading, the catmint and roses begin.
In the bottom right corner is the candytuft with the brown dried seed heads. The catmint is still blooming, but is starting to fizzle out. The daylillies and purple cornflowers hold court for the hot days of June and July.
I thought you might like to see my front bed as a progression. I’ll take a few more pics in the following weeks, and then do a wrap-up in the fall.
I’d like to say that I planned this lovely progression of flowers, choosing them for their blooming time. That I poured over gardening catalogues and drew charts and graphs. But I didn’t and that would be lying, and I never lie.
Case in point: when hubby was lamenting over the fact that he had to drop off the car to get new tires and then he would have to ride the bus into town with the weird people. And I said, “Don’t worry, they won’t bother you, you look waaaay too geeky.”
“Do, I look too geeky?”
“No darling, of course you don’t.”
