>This Tradescantia (Purple Heart) loves the sunshine and turns a dark, velvety purple in the summer. Confined to a window seat through the cold months, its stems get long and spindly, its leaves a paler green. But it’s a hardy plant and survives whatever comes its way.
The little green plant in the fore is, so I’m told, Apple Mint. It was an opening night present.

And speaking of mint, this Lemon Mint appeared my first summer here and continually threatens to take over every pot. I like having some of it around though, and have experimented with brewing tea from it. The leaves have a pleasant, lemony smell.
