Did you ever think about giving your gardens a total makeover? My newest garden is probably ten years old and over the years it has had additions randomly tucked in here and there. I've been thinking about a change and I think I'll start with white. How about a Moon Garden where an old patchwork garden used to be?

This plant is one of my favorite acquisitions this year. I love the way it has different leaf colors, some almost golden and others a true cream with green trim. Some of the leaves have just a little green on the edges. I have ordered some seed for next year. It is not a big plant but very lovely.
