Mint In Bloom!

Pineapple Mint


Variegated Mint
Well, here is three of my favorite mints.  I have some more, but these three are blooming at the moment.  The weather has been so hot that they have bloomed a bit earlier than normal, I think.  I have lost my herbal brain power to figure when these plants are usually in bloom.  I use all of these in tea blends.  Need to make up some new ones!  We had a round of severe weather with a lot of lightning.  So I'm going to post this quick.  Hope you have had a great day.  Talk to you later.

My favorite for tea is peppermint but I like to use spearmint when I cook!
Your mints look very healthy in spite of the excessive heat!

They are getting enough water, BHN! I usually use spearmint more than peppermint. I have to stay away from peppermint with my GERD. Thanks for stopping by.

My mints are going wild on me and I need to give them a major trim. I just don't have enough hours in my day to get everything I want done.

Impressive! The variegated one looks pretty. Now I know about mints ant repelling qualities I think I should add more varieties around our garden.

Isn't that the truth, Carol.

Tansy repels ants as well, Tracey.

Thanks for stopping by Hanna and for the recipe link.
