Lady's Mantle

I have been getting rid of this plant in the garden thinking that it was a weed.  Silly me.  It's Lady's Mantle (Alchmeilla) and a very hardy perennial well suited to life in my salt-laden windy garden.

  1. Graham, I love this photo! Look at the beedy little droplets and the swirl of the leaves, that little center. This is great. Now you can enjoy it :)

  3. A good shot.........A weed is just a plant growing in the wrong place......A quote from someone other than me.

  5. That's a beautiful little plant, perfect resting place for dew (rain?) drops. Glad it's not a weed. Great shot, too.
