I don't have that much space to grow many flowers that I would love to see them in my garden. But I am learning how to to grow them with vegetables side by side. Hopefully, pollinators will happily stay at our garden and we have much better luck with the fruits that need to be pollinated this summer. You can see almost every patch has coriander that is flowering profusely in the background of the picture when you see small white flowers.
I have never seen a poppy grown outside the nursery. This year we grow our poppy from seeds. I thought it will make a nice border for the veggie patch. However, never did I expected that it will grow so tall and eventually shade any nearby plants. Every morning since our poppy starts to bloom I spend more longer time in the garden before I am off to school. I am still surprised and excited looking at the different colours of poppy flowers that are blooming in the garden. As I was looking at one of the bloom this morning, a big bee was off and on that flower, and I can see the pollen flying away and how it attach on the bees legs. I felt like the bee was giving me a special lesson about how important its role as a pollinator.
This corner is near the front of our kitchen window. Self-seeded viola is growing below sunflower plant and nastartium has to be tamed not to invade other plant spaces too much. Its neighbour zucchini has some bud developing when I peek yesterday.
The pansies has hide the leek stem from front view. We don't have to cover the leek stem to get those long white stem instead of green. The pansy is not just a pretty face but have done a good job on shading the leek stem.
The linaria has bloomed for months now since middle of winter. I should have stake them but like poppy I never thought it will grow so tall. Luckily I planted them at the back.
We still have many poppy plant which has not bloom yet. I wonder will we have another different colllection type of colour. I am making a mental note , I should have sowed the poppy seed earlier this year. Well I can try again next year.
