The other morning I was out in the sunken garden when I spotted flax, Linum lewisii, in bloom. The pretty sky blue flowers were peaking out from underneath my 'prize' Scutellaria wrightii.
Not the perfect place for the plant to seed itself as the skull cap has increased it's diameter by at least another 12" this year. I am glad to see lots of small flax seedlings in other parts of the sunken garden. It really is one of my favorite flowers.
