I captured these blooming in a shady bed at the botanical garden. I thought it was deadnettle, but they are much larger than any I've ever seen, so now I'm not so sure. If anyone wants to weigh in on the identification feel free!

Now that's a point...where is it now? i shall go on Safari in my garden.
Apr 27, 2013 7:54:07 pm I went and did some research and decided it's probably SOME sort of lamium (they say there are 40 to 50 lamium species) and then read Andrea's comment. I should always check first before I look something up! :P Whatever sort it is, it's just delightful.

That said, smashing colors, focus and texture in this pic of the flora, Denise.
