weekend update

Saturday I put new geraniums and columbines in the front bed, to replace the ones that croaked this year. Ripped out the gray sagewort to make room.

From Geraniaceae Nursery:
- 2 @ Geranium procurrens × Geranium psilostemon ‘Ann Folkard’
- 2 @ Geranium richardsonii

- 2 @ Aquilegia vulgaris ‘Leprechaun Gold’
- 2 @ Aquilegia vulgaris ‘Ruby Port’
