Less grass, more garden

The grass was dead anyway, so I decided to obscure that fact by creating a new bed and expanding an existing bed.

Okay that's not completely true, I just wanted to buy more plants.

In the new bed I planted:
  • Salvia Leucantha (Mexican Bush Sage)
  • Catmint 'Select Blue'
  • Bicolor Iris
  • Kentucky Colonel Mint
  • Meir Y Teran rose
  • Daylilies (transplanted from right back bed)
  • Canna Pink Futurity
  • Salvia reptans
  • Veronica Speedwell 'Blue Charm'
  • Buddleia 'Ellen's Blue'

But I DID get smart and install an irrigation system! (Slow but not stupid, mom always said.)

Season 3 Garden upsets!

Penstemon - GONE! They were beautiful but kind of finicky.

In their place I planted some Society Garlic, which I love because it's pretty and stinky in a weirdly appealing way.
