I'm cheating a little today. I usually do the Week in Review on Fridays, but I'm going to put that off until tomorrow. Today, you get this little picture - a sweet little surprise I discovered this week while starting a mulching project. Several months ago my kind neighbor, Nor, offered me a peppermint root from her family's thriving patch to plant in my yard. I planted it, watched it wither, and forgot all about it. This week, as I was weeding our front mulch bed before adding new mulch, I found this beautiful green plant that smells even better than it looks. Don't you just love good surprises?
