I was at a community garden earlier and saw some bees on what looked like a Black Adder of some sort, does anyone know what it might be?

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I didn't notice any odor, and didn't notice it being square.

Everyone said it couldn't be done. But he with a chuckle replied, "I won't be one to say it is so, until I give it a try."  So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin.  If he had a worry he hid it and he started to sing as he tackled that thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.  (unknown)

Yep, looks like a mint to me. The only way to tell for sure is to........(drum roll...) Tear a sprig off and stick it in a mojito...then crush more up and put it in the drink...then drink it! If it tastes good and cool and your head feels good its probably some kinda mint..If it makes you sick, you've probably ingested poison ivy!
just kidding, dont take me serious......The mojito will make you feel good without the mint anyways!
Your friend,
john
