Popping in with an update!

The former unknown sedum that is now pouring out is Sedum sarmentosa. You can see how much it has grown since I planted this garden in the fall 2014!

I added a few wax begonias along the back to add some temporary color. I can enjoy this side through my kitchen window.

I'll update again when the taller sedums in the background bloom.
