Yesterday I focused on getting the vegetable garden ready for the cold weather crops. More on that tomorrow. I should have done this two weeks ago when we had one nice day, but instead I cleaned the beds around the patio. It makes me feel less overwhelmed of all the garden work that spring brings along if I clean around the patio first. This is the area of the garden that I see from inside the house the most.
The combination I picked for today I've put together three years ago and repeated every year since. The lovely cobalt blue annual lobelia with the perennial golden creeping Jenny. I do it in one or two containers around the vegetable garden to cheer-up that area.
Golden creeping Jenny or Lysmachia nummularia "Aurea" and Lobelia - Lobelia erinus (annual)
Isn't this lovely?
