Unfortunately that same thing happens to my husband. There are times he comes looking and can't find me. One day he came looking and I was nowhere to be found. Hours later when I finally came back to the house he asked me, "who puts so many flowers in their vegetable garden?"
Apparently in his travels he wandered through the veggie beds and was surprised at the number of flowers he saw. I didn't think the vegetable garden had so many flowers but on closer inspection I guess I subconsciously felt it needed some perking up.

I always include marigolds in my vegetable beds as they are said to deter whiteflies and nematodes. I don't know if they really do that but they sure look pretty contrasted against the beets.

I ordered a daylily this year from local daylily breeder Red Lane Gardens but the flower bed wasn't quite ready when the plants arrived so daylilies graced my carrot bed this year.

On the sunny side of the garage I put herbs. Cilantro and dill were combined with cosmos and rudbeckia.
