I love this garden right now....

A few years back I started covering the grass around a sweet gum tree in my back yard with 2 inches of compost in an oval shape. I wasn’t a fan of the tree but I also did not want to just take it down. I made the oval small enough I could easily touch the center of the tree from most spots. Then I started planting small Purple Coneflower Echinacea. Over the last 3-4 years I have added more and more perennial plants. Simple classic daises, a patch of lambs ear, multiple parsley plants going to seed and a Mexican sunflower. The Echinacea have thrive and I have divided them a few times and received a few new clumps from their seedheads.
With most things in bloom right now I just love this garden….
