The first plant shipment showed up today. I ordered gooseneck loosestrife from White Flower Farm. It seems like a lot of packaging for such a tiny start of a plant which has a reputation to take over a garden. I fell in love with this plant when we toured the Kansas State University Gardens last summer. I've heard it can be aggressive. My plan is to keep it in a large container. We'll see if it lives up to its reputation.
On the berm, the peas are coming up nicely.
These blooms are on a tree in a neighbor's yard which reaches over the fence into the alley.
