Fishy Circumstances

Plants

Clematis. English lavendar. Pineapple sage. Chocolate Mint. Dwarf Mint. Scotch Moss. Creeping thyme. Alpine Poppy. Dusseldorf Pride Thrift (I'd never heard of it before, but they have fun flowers).

Our container garden is looking lovely and smells wonderful. (In large part thanks to our wonderful landlady.) The problematic honeysuckle which never grows far enough in any given season to have hopes to making it to the trellis anytime soon is going to be supplemented by the clematis, with the creeping thyme to protect its roots. Almost everything's a perenniel, so hopefully it'll all overwinter well. And there's not a vegetable to be found in the garden for the racoons to terrorize. With luck, it'll be a peaceful summer.
