For the cats

We don't have a cat now and I don't think Flossie would give a cat much peace.
No one in the nearby houses have cats either; we haven't seen one here for
quite a few years. We lost our last cat on our rather busy road many years ago
and vowed not to have another one as we sadly buried our pet. A fence won't keep
a cat from wandering on the road, but we can keep our little Flossie
safe from speeding cars/trucks/buses/motor bikes etc...

Beautiful purple flowers and lovely detail on those leaves Yvonne!!!

Catmint? Catnip? Our cat ignores it... Unless we touch the plant and get the scent in the air. But if we don't touch it she ignores it.

Lovely details and DoF. BV
I keep my cats indoors. In 2010, Simon got out accidentally and got hit but thankfully survived. I don't want to go through that again. Very traumatic.

Even if there are no cats to enjoy this, it still makes a lovely photo. Sorry to hear about your kitty. Very pretty flowers and leaves. V.

It's catnip for clones! (Sorry, couldn't resist an Austin Powers line....)
What a pretty image Von! V
So sorry to read about the loss of your beloved cat. We never forget our pets.

Makes a great groundcover but does have an odd smell.
