The chicory was all in bloom this morning, so I took some shots. I wasn't the only one enjoying the flowers today, though!

Had to stop at the local nursery for some filler plants for a garden job, and they were having a sale so of course some plants ended up following me home. *sigh* They just won’t leave me alone!

Sweet potato ‘Tricolor’
 
















Sweet potato ‘Sweet Caroline Yellow and Green’




















Ajuga ‘Pink Lightning’





















I also got an Oenothera kunthiana ‘Glowing Magenta’ (which, it turns out, is probably not hardy here) and an Anemone sylvestris, a white flowered spring bloomer. But they aren't in bloom, so no pictures!

No time to plant these yet; they'll have to live on the porch until we get through getting everyone else's gardens into shape!
