Filled in the bare patches with anise hyssop, a native that grows in nice, spiky columns. The bees love it. Also picked up a butterfly bush--I had wanted one, I had planted one, and it turned out the bloody thing was mis-labeled at the nursery, and it was instead a "bluebeard." It's a nice little shrub, but not what I wanted! I'll pop it into a big pot, maybe, or into a bare patch of the bed, it's got fairly good foliage, and put the butterfly bush in that corner.

It was here for maybe thirty minutes, and I caught a tiger swallowtail on it. I am gleeful.
