Flower bed and herb garden shots...this is the herb garden, where you can see the little Swedish ground cover at the bottom. Above that is the new arugula, the flowering thyme around the stepping stones, the lush parsley, and, to the left, camomile.

The flower bed is above. I'm sorry the flowers themselves are not very obvious. We've cleaned out some of the weedy-looking calendula, and I'm trying to create more of a perennial bed that will keep its look without continual addition of annuals for color. We just put in some petunia-like perennials that quickly create nice borders. I've also discovered a lot of salvias that take little water and accept some shade.
The new stepping stones look a little bare now, but we've planted creeping thyme around them, which should eventually make a nice green carpet. Flowering thyme is the best stuff!
Suggestions?
