Finished the purple rock section and added the mulch and planted them.
Moved the kid and painted the wood blue to look like a pool of water.

WOW @secuono Did you leave anything at the nursery? You have a great variety going. The cool white flower is a columbine. I do no think I have ever seen an all white before. What is the orange flowering shrub in the may 16th post? it is stunning.

It's Scotch Broom!
Some people hate it, supposed to be invasive.
I love how fast it grows and the awesome flowers.
Not sure if it's supposed to be orange or not...lol

You have a few plants that will try to invade the rest of your planting area if given a chance. The Ajuga and the Lamium can get carried away. The Dragon's blood sedum isn't that prone to spreading -- although it does a good job of growing to cover more space -- but mine was over taken by grasses. Not a good mix.

You have my favorite Lungwort there. I believe it is called Raspberry Splash. Mine grows well in the shade and slowly has spread. It is easy to contain and the blooms are so lovely in their mix of baby colors -- pink to blue -- early every spring.
Yep, The Lamium can get carried away! Here it is trying to swallow my newly planted (last summer) Hosta. Going to have to pull some out!
