Spring time brings out the verbascums. They are related to common mullein, but by no means common. I started these beauties years ago from seed and they happily resow, here and there. They seem to love the little cracks in between my limestone walkways
In late May verbascums sprout new plants and last years plants get larger.

The variegated iris has the scent of grape pop.
Ajuga, Bressingham thyme, lavender and a lone verbascum
Early spring I set out a couple of tomatoes in “wall-o-waters”.
Perhaps next year I will find seeds of some other varieties of verbascums.
