The past few summers have brought some enticing visitors to the corner of my home, where mint grows in abundance. Its leaves give great ground coverage and coolness to our reptilian friends as well as provide dragonfly nurseries. When the mint blooms, it lures tons of bees and flies. They absolutely love the stuff and can’t get enough of it. At points of the day there is a frenzy of insects going berserk over these itsy bitsy blossoms.
