Lady's Mantle.

See the split in the leaf and how it ruffles up and down.  The lady's head is inside the split, and the ruffly leaf drapes over her tiny shoulders....I imagine.  It has a hairy leaf, and when light rain or dew falls on it, it beads up like a frost all over the surface, often one large, glistening drop accumulating in the center.  What magic!  The flowers are a waste of time.  They are kind of acidy yellow clusters of foam.  It loves shade...What am I thinking?!?!  Both of mine are in the sun.  They will be very pleasant in the new "shade room" I am planting. Damn..I should have done that today instead of working!
