Dame's Rocket

This isn't our garden, but boy, do I wish it was! Dame's Rocket is blooming wild along the roadsides everywhere right now. This gorgeous patch is about a mile from where we live. About three years ago, we dug some up and tried to transplant it into our garden, but so far we haven't seen any signs that it "took"...even though it's considered invasive, and is listed as a noxious weed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. It has to be the prettiest "weed" I've ever encountered! Why couldn't dandelions look like this?

Those are weeds? Wow. LOL. I've been catching up on this blog and your garden is looking great, Deb. I put a few pics of my garden on my Facebook page. It's not nearly exciting enough to devote a blog to!!
