Cindy, yes it does!  It looks beautiful & very healthy!  @Catherine, you're right, I haven't  seen any posts from her lately.

Now I just have to get it down pat as to when to take starts from what. The herbs flower on me so fast, I can't keep up. But first I need to get back out there and finish up my beds and get more seed planted. I have boxes of envelopes and jars of seeds I saved for yrs. So many chive and garlic chive seeds, pot marigold, love in a mist, blanket flower, really old morning glory, moss rose and lots more, just can't not save them, need to down size them too. Of course always buying more new seeds too.

Cindy I got an other blue pot today at an estate sale, pic later I am so tired after picking up leaves for 3 hrs today.

Cindy, I think I have the same small little guy, leaves don't get much bigger than an inch. Mine is picky, It's from my mom and she passed in 2004. It is growing in a bottle with water and when I tried taking a piece to plant in soil it just shriveled and died so this last piece I'm just letting it be.
