Yesterday, PJ and I decided to take advantage of the great weather we were having to plant some flowers. He planted some petunias, which he does every year. I planted more creeping phlox. We planted a few bunches of them when my mom visited us a few years ago. Over the years, they’ve spread out and grown. Here’s what they look like now:

Here’s a closer look:

And closer:

You can see that there are small sections of violet flowers. I tried planting that color to add a little variety, but most of those flowers died — I kept forgetting to water them. The green clumps in the first two pictures are the new ones. Hopefully, I’ll keep them watered this time.

I love these little flowers. Several houses in our neighborhood have small clumps of them. I aspire to having the best creeping phlox flowerbed in the neighborhood!
