July 2005, garden is one year old!

Color in the flower garden! A lot of these plants came from collected seed from the old house. Some just decided to grow there with no help from me, sprouting from seed left in the compost heap. I bought the seed for the pansy, and I bought the William Morris Rose (in center). The striped snapdragon was a happy surprise, I have no idea where that came from!
My herb garden is coming along nicely. I tried growing borage this year. And I rescued the lovely lavendar from DIY shop, where it was bone dry and starting to wilt.
I made noodle salads a lot that summer, using flowers of borage and nasturtium to sprinkle color over the top. The family loved it!
