I really like some of these piercing ideas (Guy at my local shop told me a triple helix will eventually turn bad with the middle hole being by the fold in your ear, but the first one here has her piercing above it. Hmm :) these are cute)
Dianthus Bath's Pink Shear off old flowering stems and the top couple inches of foliage after blooming. Foliage will quickly recover and look nice, even into winter. Prefers loose and sandy alkaline soils. Can be divided in spring every years.
