They smell amazing, and are completely unavoidable on my walk home. They are falling all over the fences. The only way to miss them is if you are blind and deaf, or wearing the hood of a winter coat.
There is also a new crop of catnip popping up along the commute. This stuff smells like a pungent mint plant in need of some deodorant. It is on the verge of being really nasty stuff. I plucked a single stalk for Porpus, since she enjoys the finer things in life. She went nuts over it and guarded it from Schween with a vengeance. Don’t feel too bad for Schween, she doesn’t appreciate the fresh catnip anyway, and just sniffs it without proper enjoyment.
Here is a little DNH to listen to: Bagel Brigade
I will try to find some more tonight.
