Need much more of this...

I'd rather have roses on my table
than diamonds around my neck.
-Emma Goldman

Cabana variegated rose...
as summer goes onward, these double in size.

Candytuft (Iberis Sempervirens)
This is actually an evergreen that is woody and low growing. When I first bought this, it was about 3 inches tall and maybe 2 inches in width. I didn't like the way it had a short blossom to it, but maybe it just hadn't matured yet. I now love it and want much, much more of it...everywhere!

Ranunculus (Persian Buttercup). This is my
first year playing with this. I have found out
of the three I bought, only one is surviving...hmmm. No time for high maintenance flowers in my life.
