With all the rain and occasional sun, my mint is thriving. I took advantage of the nice day and went out to look around the garden. It was breezy, so the macros were a challenge.
I had to trim back the plant, so I put some of the cuttings in a little cup inside. Then I tried to get a closer shot of the adorable little purple blooms. My cat was far more interested in the new smell of the plant leaves than my success with the camera.
Incidentally, this is catmint - not to be confused with catnip. While animals like to smell it, they don't seem to eat it. This kind of mint can be used in teas and to preserve meat. It can also me made into a spray as an organic pest control.
