Chocolate Mint Plant

I bought this pot of chocolate mint at Lowes today for my herb garden. The chocolate is for the brown stems. I also bought a pot of spearmint. Butterflies and bees like mint. More info is here: Chocolate Mint - Herbs
Reminds me of Girl Scout cookies!

Shamrock Plant

Last year I bought a shamrock plant at the grocery store. I have managed to keep it alive, and it is still blooming.
Owning the shamrock plant did not improve my luck. The plant is really an Oxalis, but the leaves resemble lucky shamrocks. They are sold around St. Patrick's Day.
