are these stachys byzantina?
Ok I am now doing my gardening at 6.00 am. Got all my baskets and containers and greenhouse plants watered and fed before I went to work. I am a morning person. Spotted my first lot of tomatoes. I love them. My courgettes are huge and my vine is growing out the window of the greenhouse. Peaches are coming along nicely too. And I have never had so many strawberries. Posted a few pics on my 'pond just for lilies 'album. In this album there is a picture of a small agapanthus, but there are seedlings of something all around the edges of the pot that look remarkably like stachys byzantina (Lambs Ears) Don't know where they came from. I never sowed them. Anybody who actually knows what they are, please let me know.
Brilliant day, but far too hot for working. However, c'est la vie. Bought a lovely wall container in work today. Its wrought iron with 2 cone baskets and has geraniums in them. Couldnt resist it. Had few drinks on patio this evening and just 'chilled'.
