Kelly's Path

I dedicated this part of my garden to my friend Kelly a few years ago.The blindingly bright Golden Oregano, I know, would bring a smile to her face, if she were here. I think of her every time  I walk down this path.

Tulipa clusiana var. Tubergens Gem

The little Tulips blooming amongst the Sedum and Golden Oregano is a species Tulip.  I love how the red pops with the green and gold.
