I love the internet for a means of learning. My intention was to make sure that I had the correct name for this plant. Thus, I discovered that it not only is enticing for us to touch it, but it is an herb and is good for making tea. Whenever I've been lucky enough to grow the plant, I've always pinched off the blooms because I don't find them attractive, but I enjoy the look of the leaves and the softness of them. I think the angle of the plant I captured here looks like the bloom of a flower.
BTW I have spent little time on-line since I've had an infection which has caused me a migraine since Sunday. Intermittently, I got on and posted my photos and looked at a couple of blogs. Today is the first day since May 26th that my whole head hasn't hurt. Now, it's just the site of the staph or strep infection (my nose). The "doc in the box" didn't test which it was; probably because treatment is pretty much the same for either. I presume it is since I feel that I'm on the road to wellness. Here's to recovery!
