The wild violets are blooming now!

My Wild Violets are blooming beautifully now! They of course are host plants for fritillaries, like the Variegated Fritillary. I mostly have them growing between and along my stepping stones:

Here’s a picture from a distance where you can see them around the stepping stones:

We have been replacing our lawn with a native grass, meanwhile – since it hasn’t filled in all the way there are lots of violets growing there. And dandelions too – but they are also pretty.

Herb Garden

Filed under: Herb Garden — Butterflygirl @ 2:53 pm

Last year I started an herb garden. What’s growing so far in it this year is sage, terragon, fennel, lavender, rosemary, thyme, lemon balm, pepperment, spearament, borage, savory, oregano and chives. I still have several basils, some chamomile, anise and a few others to put out still.
