Noll's Nip in Bloom

I Rejoice!
My catnip is in bloom.
Bees of every sort are busy
visiting each tiny purple-white flower.
Soon there will be seeds!
And seeds mean happy, little yellow goldfinches
riding the seed heads, pecking and disbursing
a seed here, a seed there.
----
Oh, how my garden grows!

We didn't know catnip made flowers. We're lucky that ours still has leaves since Mom has a black thumb!!

Oh, that's lovely! We've never seen catnip like that before. Wonder if our Mommy would grow us some....nah, she has a black thumb like the Furkids' mom. LOL
