January Thaw brings out some Mint!

After a few days of mild temps and foggy days it seems the January thaw is coming to an end. However with the few days of warmer weather I found some mint growing under old branches! This tends to happen a lot in January thaws, if it gets really warm some early blooming flowers like crocus and of course weeds. This being the first year I have mint growing in my backyard I was surprised to see the the green little leaves! Of course with snow forecast and much colder temps this mint will probably die back again.
