Heart Shaped Leaves in the Garden
Sometimes you come across a really good idea and then Nature steps in and works her magic to make it even better. I constantly tell people to lighten up on all the weeding and allow some unwanted seedlings to remain in their gardens because you never know what great combination can happen.
I over-wintered a rosemary plant right next to the foundation of the Cottage in a sheltered sunny spot in our Zone 5 garden. I was really proud that I was able to have thick stems big enough to use as skewers for grilling.
Nature threw in seed from “Grandpa Ott’s” Morning Glory and it climbed right up the rosemary. With its vine hidden and the large leaves in perfect upright heart shapes, it looks as if they are floating in mid-air. What an interesting effect!
