|On the way to the creek|
My poor mail carrier (and the neighbors) had been subjected to my weedy sad mailbox garden long enough! There was virtually no soil around the post so my pinks were trying to grow on cement.

|The Creek at French Hollow|
Ichose dwarf coreopsis because they bloom all season and can withstand the heat of the pavement and all day sun.
I moved the pinks into the front garden near the Stella de Oro daylilies where they will show off their lovely cool green leaves when their blooms are spent. Right now there are about two blooms left to open.
|The Last of the Blossoms|
I’m especially pleased to have a little bit of French Hollow Farm right here in my suburban yard. I hope the sunny blossoms and smooth creek rocks give the postal carrier a little smile too.
