Spearmint, a late season treat.

I was quite surprised to see this plant growing quite well just about a week ago, maybe not flourishing just as much as it would during summer but still doing quite well, the leaves initially caught my attention
the usual distinctive mint shaped leaves but you can see the more lime green than olive green colour found on water mint

and it was even in flower, though starting to die back a little, here it's easy to see the Spear shaped flowers from which it gets it's name.
The scent is much milder than that of water mint but it is really pleasant when crushed and makes a beautiful tea that soothes and relaxes.
