I went to the garden center yesterday looking for something to install in my planter in front of my house. I am getting tired of looking at the dandelions and the snow on the mountain (my friend Shelley always sings "snow on the mountain" to the tune of "Smoke on the Water") but I am a gardening novice. I have planted a few flowers but I always let it go back to it's natural state (a.k.a. weeds). Anyhow, it took a while to find out what this one is actually called but it is Ageratum, also known as floss flower. I got a sort of purply colored variety and now fancy myself a gardener. I haven't actually planted them yet but look how pretty!
