I have a tub filled with this, no signs of a flower yet...not sure whether to pull them out Confused



It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

It reminds me a bit of Lamium but I really don't know. I'd leave it for awhile to see what it becomes. Green Grin!

good eye stone! LOL, I was looking at Acalypha virginica earlier (probably due to viewing this thread) http://www.bing.com/images/sea... I don't know why I posted that it reminded me of Lamium ... could be I got mixed up with the threads I was on and got confused. Blinking Confused I'm getting old so it doesn't take much to confuse me anymore. Green Grin!
