Eau De Cologne Mint


I really am extremely ignorant when it comes to plant life. For example, I never knew that there were so many different types of mint. We were at the botanic gardens today and there was an entire area dedicated to the various mints. I enjoyed this the most because they encouraged visitors to pick the leaves and have a sniff. The most memorable were the Chocolate Mint and this Eau De Cologne Mint. They really smelt like their names!

The brief visit reminded me not to get stuck in a rut and to keep observing and enjoying this world we live in. Yes, a baby takes up time but there must always be learning and a sense of freshness to our lives. Its so easy to keep walking around in this fog I'm in....I really do forget to observe and digest.

Mint is really easy to grow, perhaps even too easy. Before you know it, your entire garden could be minty.
