A variety of sedums

Our sedum bed continues to provide a diversity of colors and textures. It's jewel-toned in morning and evening light, and now, in mid-spring, many of them are starting to flower.

Flowers are merely a bonus in a group that encompasses plants that are tough, drought-tolerant, often perennial, and which have leaf shapes of all sorts.

  2. It's a metal ring, installed by the previous owner via a landscape designer -- it makes quite a nice defined border between the sedum bed and the front path.

    But our gardening assistant (aka Mocha) doesn't much care for the stones on the front path, even though they're smooth!

I enjoy hearing from fellow nature lovers and gardeners. Let me know your thoughts.
