The catmint is such a lovely plant, with its sprays of blue/lilac flowers the length of the stems. And of course it is also a favourite of cats, who love to smell it and roll in it, rather as they do catnip. So it is a perfect flower to announce that we are finally going today to pick up a new member of our family, a Cornish Rex cat who is retiring from her career of raising kittens in Alberta and will be spending her retirement being pampered and cuddled in Canning, Nova Scotia. In the fall of 2019 we finally had to say goodbye to our dear old Rupert, at which point, we decided we would not have any more cats. But time, as they say, heals the pain and now the years of good memories remain and it is time for us to welcome another cat into our home. I have posted today a Remembering Rupert post, with some anecdotes from our time with him, as well as a few photos of him through the years by both Steven and me. You can see that post at the link below this paragraph if you would like to visit. Meanwhile, enjoy the scents and colours the day brings you all, starting perhaps with this Catmint. A Flower a Day #293 (NB while I make every effort to identify the flowers posted, I make no guarantee that the name is correct. It’s about the photograph, not the name.:-) )
