Way cool - I had to look up why creeping myrtle is called 'flower
of death'. "The Italians placed garlands of the plant
on the graves of infants, calling it the flower
of death. During the Enlightenment in Europe, the French considered periwinkle an emblem of friendship." Interesting stuff! If ya like that kinda stuff of course
Hmmm Im thinking deadnettle (anyone sensing a theme here?) is the closest match to #2 - but I'll go out and sniff them leaves tomorrow anyhow!
I've been watching that morning glory like a hawk, waiting for it to bloom - when it does, I'll be sure got get some pics so I can ask you all again to help me ID. Thanks! I'll report back about #2 tomorrow
Sweet dreams all!
