I went away for a week and evidently the garden enjoys a bit of “alone time”. Almost everything in this picture is edible (except the giant spruce tree).
The oregano hedge (like everything) has enjoyed the alternating rain and sun and nearly doubled in size in seven days.
Celery (which I use only for delicious celery seed because I never get around to blanching it), rose campion, and valerian; tall plants growing rampant at the back of the garden.
Briarseed bread poppies, each blossom opening and falling apart in a day but leaving plenty of seeds behind.
Golden marguerite, mallow, Joe Pye weed, in a garden row for the bees.
And finally, at the edge of the garden, a wall of angelica.
