Hello again,

I have an herb that seems to have started growing spontaneously
a few years ago. It's well-established now. :)
It has a pleasant smell but I don't know what it is.

Can anyone here identify it?

Lemony scent? Maybe lemon balm Melissa officinalis?
For me, gardening is really just an excuse for playing in the dirt. Admittedly, plants are a satisfying by-product.

Thanks I don't think this one is it. It has a distinct scent but I would not characterize
it as a lemony scent.

Thanks Paul, I think it may be Catnip.
How would you charcterize its scent, if possible?
