I was very busy last weekend so I didn't get a chance to post the pictures that I took of my garden, so I'm doing it today.
Lychnis coronaria. I got it at a local department store nursery several years ago. It is doing a wonderful job of multiplying and looks great with the variegated dogwood.
Pennycress. It is considered a weed by most, but I find it to be a very lovely garden plant. It has 3 stages. In the spring it is covered in tiny white flowers, much like baby's breath. The flowers turn into green coin-like seed pods. And finally there is this stage, the green seed pods mature into golden coins. This plant is an annual, but is easily propagates.
A wide shot of the main garden. It still needs work, which is good, because I'm not ready to let it go on auto-pilot yet.
