Before the sun reaches the English garden it is a time to admire a Blackfoot daisy which seeded in the gravel in front of the dry stone wall. Everyone who knows my garden knows that I have a weakness for letting plants grow in the gravel and between the pavers. Of course it means more weeding but the joy of all my pretty self sown plants more than makes up for it.
The semicircular bed in the English garden, with its centerpiece Philippine Violet, is awash with annual narrow leaf zinnias and gomphrena. I'll be collecting seeds for next year to plant in other places.
More Blackfoot daisies spill over the dry creek in front garden.
The dry creek outside the wall is the place where I shall be spending my time today. The torrential rains we had 2 weeks ago resulted in the pea gravel washing into the larger river rocks. Just one job I didn't need to be doing but it has to be done.
Y'all have a nice weekend.
