Pretty Ajuga Borders

The flagstone path outside my front door in SJC has finally come alive with Spring color. The ajuga that is planted along the edges is blooming with abandonment and I love those spiky purple blooms filling in among the Pacific Crest iris. I find that in the right spot ajuga is a great plant in our area for a low grower that spreads nicely without being too aggressive. It does take some sun to do so, although I know it is ofter touted as a shade ground cover. Love it, love it, love it!

Kudos! What a picturesque path. What is the tiny stuff that is growing between the flagstones?

That is wooly thyme growing in the cracks!
