Garden Update - New plants and flowers! Put up Purple!

Some days you can just hit it right in the Lowe's clearance section. . .after weeks of coming up bupkus, we walked out hands full of pretty purple posies!

Two hanging baskets in our kitchen garden -
Lobelia erinus

Sutera x hybrida
It says the Bacopa can take full sun and the Lobelia morning sun.  I may end up switching their positions.  Right now the Bacopa is on the right.  Both baskets were only $5 each.  I like the shades of purple in both.

The Columbine is a first for the front garden.  This was marked down to $3.

We also picked up Creeping Phlox for $1.  It looked a little less photogenic, but we are willing to give it a chance.

And this other little purple-flowered plant, which the tag was missing.  If anyone has any idea what it is, let me know!

“...and so many colors
I will have seen...
the menacing greys
and pine greens
the soft pink and purples
of spring
and summer blue
and so many others
without you.”
