Alyssum 'Royal Carpet,' Gomphrena haageana 'Strawberry Fields,' Cosmos, Sedum 'Autumn Fire,' Skull Cap 'Texas Pink'

Except for the Sedum and Skull Cap, all the flowers in this front yard bed are from seedlings from the previous years. I've allowed them to pop up where they may. The informality feels perfect. I also get exciting color combinations that I only had a small part in. In the second photo above, I got to know the Alyssum up close and personal. Sometimes we don't take the time to really see a flower, especially if it is low and acts like a groundcover. It really is a statuesque flower up close!
