Wild Mint Blooms ~ Nature Tuesday

My cats love the taste of wild mint. It is really good for their digestion. They do not go outdoors, so I keep mint growing in the screen room for them. And for me as well. I use it in my hot tea during the fall and winter. 

Sharing the photo with today’s Nature Tuesday challenge.

Love the smell. Takes me back to my childhood. We always had it growing wild around our home. I noticed the blooms on the mint this morning. The plant has been enjoying all the rain we have gotten lately. 

I keep it in a container so it doesn’t get out of hand. Wild mint can be invasive. But growing it like this works for me and my cats.

  1. In my old place I had several mints – 7 or 8. I used them all the time and also gave fresh mint to friends for “Pho” … I also had Lemon Balm — you have to thin all these by digging a bit once in a while. I surely miss the plants from that place. I started adding some essentials here. So far just rosemary, lemongrass, and oregano.
    Fresh mint iced tea is awesome in summer.

    • My neighbor gave me my first cutting. Hers really got out of hand. It grew as a shrub. I like to keep mine contained. Yes it is awesome in the summer. But something about hot eat with honey and mint in the winter that takes me back.
