Your welcome Jill....that is Yarrow behind the Kale :D
That would be the clumps of Yarrow in the very first picture.

WOW vera,I really enjoyed your photos.I have been making notes for combos to use this year.I am going to have to borrow some of yours that I found stunning.I have the scabiosa and blue flax in my holding bed-they will now become combined,the petunia and moss rose is great together and one I probably would have never combined-but now,yes.The one that really caught me was the zinnia and amaranthus,together-they are awesome.Thank You for the inspiration.I try every year to grow lavender and love the plant.It will just not grow for me :-(

Those brightened my day also and your helping me out in the fact the first 10 containers I WS I didn't mark each container, so I know what i sowed that day, but not what each container has. Some of those pics are of what i sowed, so i have a little handy pic ID. Thanks
