Yarrow (Achillea millefolium)

yarrow (white flower & pink in lower right corner), lavender (purple), heliopsis (yellow flower), 
and there is even a bit of dill mixed in. 
This patch has gone a bit wild...and I'm fine with that...

Yarrow has been growing in my garden for years.   
I think it may even be part of the original divisions 
my parents gave me 
my first summer in my home.

It can be invasive 
but I love how this plant seems to fill in the gaps between plants, 
softening the edges a bit.

Did you know?
I’ve recently learned that the yarrow leaves 
have healing properties that stop bleeding
