Nearly nip!

Dear Shayne,

Remember the catnip plant I am growing? (Photos of the original tiny plant here and here.) Well, I am getting excited now... look how big it is!
My catnip plant!

Particularly, let's zoom in and get a look at these little buds:

See that? That's future catnip, baby!

love,

That is too COOL! I'd probably kill it if it were at my house... but it looks like you have a green thumb for sure.

Hee hee. That made me giggle, Liz. I most certainly do *not* have a green thumb -- that's why I am so excitedly posting photos of my little plant -- I've killed every living thing I've ever tried to grow before.

I can't wait to have catnip! (Oh, yeah... the cats will probably be excited, too...)

Awesome! I didn't realize catnip is so interesting looking.

For the most part, it looks kind of like a mint plant (they're apparently related [which I never knew]) but now there are these spiky buds showing up.

And the buds are where the action's at!
