Hey everyone, we found this on our land and aren't sure of what it is. It smells like minty/lemony/lavender. Thanks for any help!

Hi trw8108, Welcome!

I wonder if it might be a type of Pennyroyal, which has a minty fragrance. Drummond's Pennyroyal is a native of Texas and other parts of the Southwest and Mexico. You can view photos for comparison on these pages:

That's the way my thyme looks. If it's not Pennyroyal, perhaps a member of the thyme family?
. . . it's always better to ask questions, than jump to conclusions.
AND . . . always hear both sides of the story before making a judgment.
