Cone flowers, Echinacea purpurea, are loving it.
They are positively in their element. I am so happy for these flowers. They seeds themselves freely and it is just a matter of not letting them take over.
I let a few grow here and there to break up the expanses of gravel.
I'm more concerned about my Swan River daisy, Brachyscome. Clouds of blue, purple and white miniatures daisies are not long for this earth. They are already looking quite stressed. Still they have been beautiful for weeks and I would not be without them.
More reminiscent of a woodland meadow than a dry gravel garden, a clump of Oxalis has appeared from nowhere.
