Anise Hyssop (Agastache foeniculum)
This plant re-seeds continously all summer, almost to the point of being invasive. I love the look of the purple sprouts. My kids call this the "root beer plant." A good cocktail herb.
Strawberry (Fragaria Ananassa)
I planted some strawberries last year that seem to be coming back. I don't remember what varieties (isn't that awful that I don't make a note of these things?) but I remember that I planted one June and one everbearing variety. I will probably add a few more plants to this bed this year.
These are probably Allium hollandicum and will green up soon.
Crocus - usually the first to bloom in my garden. I try to add a few every year.
Lavendar (lavendula)- This plant hasn't quite taken off, but it hasn't died either.
I believe this is Sorrel (Rumex acetosa), purchased from Hook Mountain Growers last year. I remember Pam telling me that it would be among the first shoots out of the ground, and she was right!
