Summer Garden Bed


My sundial is COMPLETELY buried under Salvia ugligonensis (sp?) Argentine Skies, so I sketched it from memory; the rosemary is three feet high; the Sedum Autumn Joy is budded with flowers for bloom later this summer; the Chaste tree is in full bloom; and the pink Lady Balsam is in its third generation! I tried this without pencil before hand ....!!! YEAH ... growth!
