Lavender Swedish Ivy, maple-leaf shaped geranium

This view cuts off the thyme from the other picture, at the bottom.  Those steps are our neighbour’s–so you can see why we try to be careful about not actually planting things on her side.  (But she’ll be happy enough if things spread there that she doesn’t have to mow!)  This lavender does so. well.  It’s budding up now, but the branches have the fragrance as well–and when you pick lavender, the scent stays on the dried boquet FOREVER!  (That’s lamium and hostas in the background, and moss phlox in front of the lavender.)

This little plant is hidden between the hostas and the lamium.  There are so many variations of geraniums–this one has now started to bloom with little orangy-red flowers.
