April 18, 2012 -- a handful of flowers

This is one of those days when I just picked a handfull of flowers and dropped them directly into a vase. (I did take a minute to choose a vase of the right size.) The picking started when I inadvertently snapped off a good pansy flower while deadheading some spent ones. That flower drove everything else I picked--first some yellow mustard flowers, then some wild blue forget-me-nots, then a stem of purple of Ajuga, a couple of lavendar Chinese temple bells, and a purplish leaf. I can't remember the name of the plant with the purplish leaf. It's a very aromatic Vietnamese herb, begins with an H, and is a bit invasive. Help anyone? I know I once called it "Hootennany plant" to help myself remember it's botanical name, but now all I can remember is "Hootennany plant"!

    The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Ie.
    I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I'd post
    to let you know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed
