It doesn't seem fair to go through spring without posting a few "pretty" pictures, so I'm going to give into the urge while I have time and energy tonight.
Since this is a new location and a new garden, I'm still in early days yet, learning what will thrive here, what will just survive, and what just doesn't like this yard. Hopefully these flowering beauties will all be thrivers.
Hopefully, in a couple years, this entire area will be carpeted with golden ragwort plants. To facilitate that, I'm going to leave the spent flowers on the plants until the seeds have dispersed. Then I will cut the stems off and just let the plants function as an attractive groundcover for the rest of the year.
I do plan to solve the "plants plopped into the middle of grass" issue...but that will have to wait for quieter times, I'm afraid.
As I've written this post, I've realized that I haven't gotten photos of several other blooming plants in the yard, but I'll have to save those for another day. I hope your spring is bringing you lots of fresh beauty all around!
