Bachelor buttons and bleeding hearts
Dames rocket (sometimes called Dames violet) just before it blooms. One of my favorite wildflowers, I imported this into my garden a few years ago.
For such a dainty flower, lilies of the valley are amazing hardy. I dug the roots of these out of the area where earthen steps descend on the east side of our house. This spring, the lilies are back in the steps.
Snow in summer. This is one of my favorite ground covers. I think I’m going to pick up some more of this for spring planting.
