Catnip flowers?

The catnip seeds' packaging was very accurate when it said the plant will mature in three months. Since the catnip plant was re-potted about 2.5 weeks' ago, it adapted well to the new pot, and started to flower at 11 weeks.

I'll try to take photos of the tiny flowering buds during daylight hours, if possible. Flash photography is hopeless for such closed-up pictures (over-exposed), and my camera's zoom capability is limited.

Catnip at 9.5 weeks

I read on the net somewhere that humans can consume catnip as a calming tea. :)

Anyway, it comes from the mint family.
