• Borage,  one my all-time favorite herbs.  It's such a hard worker in your garden.  It will repel tomato hornworms and cucumber beetles.  Both its flowers and foliage are edible.  And it readily self-sows so you don't have to purchase new plants each year.  What's not to love?

  • Grosso lavender flower on Bergarten sage leaf.  A lavender wand, beaten down by recent rains, landed on a sage leaf creating an interesting juxtaposition.

  • Lovely yarrow flowers - they look delicate and fragile but are very tough.  This yarrow is growing in a xeriscape surviving only on precipitation with no supplemental watering.

  • Bee on Grosso lavender - among its many uses, lavender attracts beneficial insects such as bees and butterflies to your garden.
