When we came home from the Park Seed sale last spring, I knew just where I was going to put the three fat lambs ears that I had gotten! But I hadn’t thought through all the combinations that would happen in that spot!
On one side, the soft grey velvet of the lambs ear looks amazing all year long next to its bristly creeping juniper neighbor. Then all summer, it has the friendly blue tones of catmint to hang out with. And now, silky purple crocuses! (Photograph borrowed from my sister’s Project 366 collection)
