It's all shades of purple with orange accents up in here for this month's GBBD (hosted by May Dreams Gardens), starting with the star of the front yard: artichoke (and, yes, they do feel like koosh balls).
Curb strip Candystripe cosmos, from seed thrown out last year
Globe mallow just keeps trucking along
Creeping germander hasn't crept very far, but the blooms remind me of lavender
Mexican petunia, filling in with no help from me, per usual
End of the larkspur among the iris foliage
Trumpet vine just started blooming yesterday
Not pictured, but just started blooming: magnolia, crepe myrtle and coral bean.
Happy spring, gardeners!
