|Black-Eyed Susans (Rudbeckia) in our front curb for August.|
|The Front Woodland also contains a large Forsythia bush, which I leave in its natural, fountain shape. Wood spurge, Euphorbia amygdaloides var. robbiae, has filled out quite a bit under these plantings, as well as our curb saver, Sedum 'Acre'.|
|Flowering in our other curb strip is Daucus carota, which is commonly called wild carrot in the UK and Queen Anne's lace in North America.|
|Queen Anne's lace, a biennial, is of the family Umbelliferae, now known as Apiaceae. There are more than 3,700 species in this family, most of which have the typical umbel-type flower. Poison hemlock is another plant in this family, and looks very like Queen Anne's lace (Daucus carota).|
|I am enjoying the wild look of this curb!|
|And I think that the white flowers look quite nice when viewed from the street against the dark green background of the ivy on the hillside.|
|Purple-leaved Ajuga covers the hill behind this Daucus carota.|
Hope you have a lovely weekend in your garden!
