my favorite view (so far) of the expanded garden
I'm amazed at how quickly plants are filling in and how settled the new garden is looking just a few months after we dug it. Here's a shady little nook near the house where B planted a few coleus. Some comfrey to the left and an old hosta in the distance. The frilly stuff is bronze fennel. The coleus will fill in as the summer progresses (if they don't succumb to the heat this week), but their size now is just right to my eyes, and I like the way the other plants are arranged them like protectors.
