The thing with having such jumbled up flower plantings is that it can be easy to overlook something! But that can also lead to pleasant surprises! I just noticed this evening that one of the valerian plants is starting to bloom! I've read that not everyone is fond of it, but I can now agree heartily with Tasha Tudor that it is "a fine old herb"!
And while I was out with the camera I snapped a few pictures of the heartsease and the first petunia flowers. :)
