Creeping Along

These creeping phlox (or ground phlox) above, have been nestled in against this stone wall, down near the roadside, ever since we moved here. Each spring though, they seemed to suffer from the salt and sand the town spreads on the road in winter. A few years ago I transplanted several clumps up next to the barn. There they have flourished in full sun, in well drained soil. I love the new carpet of color below, that we can see out our kitchen window. But I still appreciate the feisty group where they came from.
