I had plans for a certain type of planter beds made up of the blooming things I left behind at the home we shared. But what's emerging is a very eclectic mix of unusual and wild flowers. These wild flowers growing up through the rock is something I'm embracing. I'm liking the look of this wild, natural garden.
The daisies have a strong presence.
These also are coming up everywhere. I haven't been able to find out what they are.
I lucked out with this oxalis which seems to be clumping rather than spreading.
Then there's this which I totally can't find anything about.
What's come up after the annihilation? Ferns, Foxglove, a Fuchsia bush, Cocosmia, Wild Iris, Flowering Poppies, Daisies, Oxalis, Calla Lilies, Snapdragon, and a thriving Tea Tree shrub which the deer take the blooms like they're candy. There's also those perfectly blue wild things and interesting bright pink blooms on those celery colored stalks, above.
Had I been impatient and tilled up the yard to establish new beds I would have missed out on everything previous owners purposely planted.
