End of Season Flowers

Water Mint Mentha aquatica

The Water Mint (Mentha aquatica) has gone mad again this year, spreading its roots and sprouting throughout the garden pond. Yet its sweet sugary goodness attracts many insects, so it is always good in that respect. This is one of the last blooms which I wanted to try and capture before they all disappeared with the advance of autumn.

    1. The seasons this year have really flown by. It doesn’t seem long since winter ended and I was looking forward to spring and summer … and now these have gone and autumn is almost at the door. Thank you Linda πŸ™‚

  1. Yes, it’s sad to think of the blossoms going away till spring. One advantage of living in Austin is that we’ll still have wildflowers of various species for a couple of months.
