Did you enjoy your evening out Katie (apart from on the way there of course) and did your brother get any awards?

Oh, thanks, Kylie. Yes, we had a wonderful time. The food and "smoozing" company was super. I was able to visit with my brother, who used to live within minutes of me but, by last October, had moved to Nashville. It was great to see him.

No, he didn't win in any of the categories in which he was nominated, but he was the presenter for some and did a great job.

That all sounds wonderful Katie

That is a shame that your brother did not win any awards, I bet he is very talented! The presenting job sounds great though!

So pleased you all had a lovely evening

What is Magilla Perilla? Is a lamium? A coleus? Does it have flowers?

Sorry, took the pic in the dark. It looks like a coleus, but it's not. I've grown it for many years, love it. It's a great container plant, and I love the name. It has flowers like a coleus, but I pick them off. The coleus at the bottom of the pic is Fishnet Stockings, also a fun plant!

Yeah, it looks like the leaves are smoother than coleus. So, flowers? Square stem?

Wow, Katie! That had to have been terrifying. I'm so glad you're still here.

It's a member of the mint family, an annual, holds up well in heat, and handles sun or shade. Flowers are insignificant, like coleus. It can get pretty big and tall, and does well in containers. I use it in mixed planting whiskey barrels.
