Hi Jill,
I walked around in a confused state of mind, talking to my plants today, trying to get a purple mint-type to step forward.....now I feel better....cause it didn't come from me....and I feel worse.....cause I don't know what it is and therefore can't help to ID it.
It sure is an attractive plant....in the mint family, huh? I know the guilty enabler will step forward soon and tell us what it is....LOL!! Hugs and blessings, Beth

Thanks Todd, That is what it is, now if I could remember who gave it to me. Beth I thought it was you but I guess I am wrong.

Jill, I'm not positive but I think Jan (birdlady) had those. Can't say for sure though, I'm certain the "culprit" will surface soon. LOL

I love that term "Guilty Enabler". I'll add it to the list of politically correct term I have saved. I've got to go to a half-day HR meeting in a couple of weeks so I'm going to take this with me.
