Small white flowers, bunchy green leaves . . . my favorite groundcover, and perfect for growing in containers full of otherwise taller plants.

This year I planted a bunch of allyssium from the nursery, but also bought a couple of packets of seeds (as well as a packet of delphinium seeds) because I wondered if could grow my own. This is, btw, the seductive power of gardening. The weather’s been cold and I didn’t get around to planting any when I planted my containers a couple of months ago, but I did take advantage of a warmish day (above 60) last week and sprinkled the seeds into the top layer of dirt in a variety of containers that were looking sparse.

Lo and behold! Sprouts!

pictures to be posted later — gotta wait till morning to take them.
