I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

|Thank you all for the 's and 's. Yes, this plant surprised me as well, with the beautiful and fragrant flowers, and also the magnetism it has for bees of all kinds! Really glad that I added this to the border!|

Really, really pretty.
You made me find out more about it.
Looks like it used primarily as an ornamental vs culinary.
Has anyone tasted this one?
Thanks for spurring my interest.
