Purple Anthers

I never noticed the velvety purple anthers in catnip flowers before.

Mint family flowers are like miniature orchids. Although the plant is reviled and cursed across this continent, the flowers of Creeping Charlie (Glechoma hederacea) are quite beautiful. The plant is a close relative of Catnip, another Eurasian alien.

There is so much in nature that is so tiny it goes unnoticed. These are lovely!
