purple blooms

After a hot couple months, the flowers in our yard are coming to life again. And they definitely have a purple trend going.

Our neighbor was adamant that we wouldn’t be able to grow lavender, since she had no luck after several tries. We planted it anyway, and would you look at that.

These asters have been waiting patiently all summer for their time, and we were super surprised at how enthusiastically they bloomed. They literally stop traffic.

A relatively new addition to the yard, but jumped right onto the purple bandwagon.

This was an experimental planting, in a very shady area. Do you have those areas in your yard where you aren’t quite sure what will want to grow there? It seems to be working hard to survive. Bloom where you are planted, right?
