Lettering with a Sharpie. I printed out each letter on my home printer, then pinned it in place and traced the outline with a ball-point pen. That left a slight indentation in the wood as a guideline to fill in the letters.

I purchased a tiny pot of this plant at a nursery that specialized in herbs - about 8 years ago. Nurseries should not be allowed to sell this plant. It can be invasive. It hasn't been too bad for me, but has started edging out the black-eyed Susans, so it has to go. It won't be easy to eradicate. It spreads by seed and rhizome. What is it? Chameleon plant (Houttuynia cordata). Another complaint to add to the list: it has an odd smell. I did find the perfect transplant location for it, though :)

It kinda looks like fireworks. Sea holly is a perennial that likes to be neglected. You can easily grow it from seed. They are available in a range of blue-purple tones. Even the stems are colored.
