...Spring in the greenhouse. I went in to check on things and found that despite the chill outside, it was 85 degrees in here! Everything is growing vigorously, including the beloved weeds.The dead nettle (Lamium purpurea) was teaming with ants who apparently like the nectar in the flowers. It is said that a tea made of the fresh leaves and flowers can 'lift a melancholy mood'. If the ants won't mind, I might give that a try today.
