the weekend in a nutshell

a bit of this…

…details tomorrow.

a bit of that…

…details later this week.

and a little slice of this…

no details, the evidence is all gone!  ;-)

lots to share, but i’ll leave you with a pretty little thing in my yard, which carries a pretty strange name

a little bit of info about the spotted deadnettle:

  • scientific name: Lamium maculatum
  • variety shown above in photo is “pink chablis”
  • member of the mint family
  • low-maintenance perennial ground-cover that grows and spreads quickly
  • part to full shade; tolerates sun
  • deadhead flowers (more about deadheading later this week) to encourage dense growth after the first bloom
  • may have received its name because leaves are similar in shape to the stinging nettle but without the toxic effects
information about deadnettle sourced from marthastewart.com and fine gardening.
