Yes, my husband and I are weirdos...but we're nice weirdos.
This is the purple bearded iris that I thought was dead when I transplanted it from my old house, so I threw it next to the bulkhead, thinking it would mulch into the ground...it did more than mulch, much to my delight!
Herbs and catnip - yeah, I'm probably asking for it, growing this with neighbor cats out patrolling.
I planted lupines and a low growing verbena in this corner.
We still have a lot to plant, but I love looking out my kitchen window and seeing this lovely patch. I have designs for a trellis floating around in my head. That may be on the agenda for this long holiday weekend.
