Mint

One of my daughters-in-law loves to buy potted plants at the nursery, and brings them home with good intentions of making a herb garden, but then forgets to water them. Last year she bought a mint plant in a tiny pot. It sat outside for a long time just looking sadder and sadder until I decided to take pity on the poor thing and bring it home.

And now look at it! It's taking over the world. Mmmmm.... love the minty aroma!

  1. I had a mint plant for awhile, but its proximity to me doomed it. That one is pretty!

  3. Our neighbour buys a few potted plants every year, but we have to do the watering. :)

  4. I never have enough uses for mint but keep it around for the scent. That is a huge plant!

  5. The mint plant just needed your TLC. We have some mint and chocolate mint plants, they are great for making tea both hot and iced.

  6. In reply to your question about Wanda...I think what she means is she looks forward to Heaven and seeing all those that have gone before and not so much to the dying process...(:0)

  7. I hear mints are spreading plant. I like to have herbs in my garden. Regarding your comment, there are various different varieties of “sakura”. Some of them bloom in late winter or even in October. “Jyugatsu-zakura” (October-sakura) blooms modestly small and white from October to January.

  8. Mint has a way of doing that Shammi, taking over the garden I mean. I was always pulling it up from between the tiles at my mum's house ☺
