Above you can see the edge of one of the beds with over-wintered & self-reseeded sweet alyssum in white and purple. Intermixed I have tulips and miniature carnations, with the latter surviving the winter. The climate in Davis, CA can be very mild in the winter and this year that was especially true. I like the combinationof purple and white overall. To the right of the flowers are various veggies that grew over the winter and are now exploding including lettuce, beets, dill, carrots, and cilantro.
Here you can see all kinds of flowers in a gardening riot mixed with veggies.
