Karen, beautiful banner!

I'm glad you all liked this banner. I didn't own this plant when I photographed it, but I do plan to buy one next Spring. I've always wanted to plant a Moon Garden, and this will fit in perfectly to start it off.

The Acorn s are much appreciated! Thank you to Fleur, Marilyn, and tx_flower_child!
