The Garden, Looking Pretty

OK, enough ugly garden pictures. Here's the eye candy, or at least this is as much eye candy as I could muster. Artemesia, Spanish bluebells (which grow like weeds around here--I did not plant them), and hens.

Next, phlomis (aka Jerusalem sage) with the yellow flowers, centranthrus (Jupiter's beard) with the pink flowers, and orange-flowered calendula. And artichoke to the right. When this area fills out in summer, it's one of my favorite parts of the garden--nice variation in height and color, something always in bloom, and too densely-planted for a weed to so much as clear its throat.

And finally--lilac, bluebells, daffodils on my desk. Can you smell it? The fragrance filled my attic for a week.
