Mellow Yellow Monday



WOW- the week went by fast! Here it is time again for Mellow Yellow Monday.
Today, I chose a plant from my garden. It is a ground cover under an Oak tree. I just LOVE the texture of the leaves and the tiny yellow flower under them.                                                                                


This Dead Nettle, Yellow Archer, grows 6 - 8 inches tall.

I like the looks of this flower, it's so different. I agree, the texture of the leaves is very unique.

I've seen this plant before, but didn't know what it was called. Dead nettle, that must explain why I thought of nettles when I saw just the tip of the top leaves!

Thanks for coming by!

That's very pretty and unusual looking! :) At least it's unusual to me. I've never seen this plant!
