Do you feel

super- cranky and a little anxious do you eat more sweets have you stop hanging out with you blogger friends? Could be you just need a little flower fix with plans for spring. Never fear Burpee is here with a new plant.Perilla, Fantasy
They say the most impressive plant in years.
Deep satisfying colors thick leaves are splashed with dark and neon tones.
Tall, rugged and drought tolerant.
Sounds like just what I need for the garden.

I saw that and immediately ordered a Burpee seed catalog. That is gorgeous. I have roses up north and want to find something to fill in around the base of them. Maybe I'll just plant more rose bushes. Have a great day.

That is a beautiful flower. I love those leaves. However, I have a black thumb, so will just enjoy the pictures.

Very colorful coleus..I am not sure if I like it or not yet..the dark purpley color is not my cup of tea..I think it would look great in a planter..a big tall one:)
