Mint missile

Mint thistleOn Saturday, I noticed the mint had not just started going to seed again, it had, in fact, blossomed.

“That thing looks like a thistle,” I said to Steve. “A mint thistle!”

I minced over to it with my camera. “I guess I ought to cut that off,” I said. “Otherwise it’s going to explode and there will be mint all over the neighborhood.”

“Mint missile,” said Steve.

    Mint missile – love it. I think there’s not much you can do to keep this stuff down. My husband attacked ours and declared it gone, and it was back in full force within two months.

    Tanna, at least it’s tasty, even if it’s invasive…

    Lisa, thanks — glad you stopped by!
