Now it is a champ. And we got it some friends (who will hopefully fare better than their predecessors). We got them in a bit earlier than the ones last year, and this spring has been quite cool and rainy here in the valley, so I am hopeful.
|Can you guess which one is the champ? The one on the right is actually a start from the one on the left.|

Our most surprising entry goes to this ground cover. I'm not sure what it is, and I know that it generally flowers each year in the spring. I didn't expect it to flower this year because it had a few buds on it when we transplanted it. I thought all the strength would go to the roots and kill off the flowers. Boy, was I wrong!
|Surprise! I'm healthy and flowering.|

|Chives look happy (and taste good).|
|Even though it isn't blooming, you still can smell it.|
|Mums getting ready for the fall.|
|A lonely sprig of asparagus. We'll have to let it go to seed so that we get more.|
|Another mystery ground cover.|
What's in your garden this year? Any blooms you want to share?
