I was looking at some newly bloomed gaillardia, and suddenly noticed this very nice volunteer. Anyone know what it might be?

Looks like something in the mint family. Does it smell like mint?

Just went out and sniffed and yes I think it does have a mint-related smell!

Kinda looks like catmint to me. Just went out and took a picture of Nepeta 'Walker's Low' for comparison. What do you think?

Thanks Sue I think that's it! Thank You! my catmint 'moved' and so I didn't recognize it! Hilarious! extra embarrassing given my user name and avatar photo! *Blush* does it help if I admit that I'm in the bottom 2% of the adult US population in terms of visual memory? nodding Sighing!
