Variegated ground cover – purple and white

A few folks came around the garden yesterday and pointed out these as lovely, so not much to say but to show you a picture.

They are Ajuga Reptans, and have been showing purple and white spikes all winter – a relatively slow-growing ground cover that happily fills out a little space between flagstones and spreads around.  I think it cost me something like 50p last year, and this year I’ll split it around and place it repeatedly along the side of the path and grass.  A lovely little plant, no bother, in full sun.
