on the deck

I've been cutting some of the purple basil- Thai variety- to put in salads. Base of a flower stalk when pinched off, that had a few seed-cases left on, has the shape of a different kind of flower.
They're pretty, but hard to get a decent picture of.
I still can't believe how grand the foliage is on the pepper plant.
Bigger than my hand.
Coleus in pots are getting really lush.
I still have another unknown in a pot- these two plants I dug up out of the side yard. One has got the disease that makes foliage yellow and wither, but this one is doing well. I still think it looks like a rose.
