If you ever decide to plant catmint, prepare to have lots and lots of it. And that’s not a bad thing at all if you enjoy clouds of purple blooms. I had planted it on the right side of my walkway but by the second year it had decided to jump across to the left side too! I just let it do its thing. I enjoy its display all summer long. When I noticed how prettily the catmint purples nestled around the various grays of the slate walkway, the limestone and my dented old watering can, it was time to capture this little garden vignette with paint and paper!
