PhotoHunt - Smelly

Photo Hunters

Smelly - pungent or herbal


Catnip leaves are strong smelling if crushed. Some cats seem to experience a "high" and act a bit silly like Moe (orange tabby). Other cats like Mindy (white/grey tabby) are unaffected and simply eat it. The potted plants in the picture are catnip seedlings, of course.


















Smelly - foul (very)

Another plant, this one is a member of the mushroom/fungus family and is called a Stinkhorn. Found two of these growing in the lawn. Trust me you don't have to search for these, their disgusting odor makes their presence known. Need a good frost to get rid of them!

Those are both great photos for smelly! Catnip is wonderful, but only really strong catnip affects me these days.

I think it's great that you put up two kinds of smelly. I have heard about stinkhorns, but we don't have them around here.

I do consider you good friends. Thank you so much for your kind wishes and prayers. They seem to be working. My sister-in-law is improving and may be discharged and be able to come home Tuesday.

Fine shots all! My cats do not react to catnip at all.

Moe looks like he's so under the influence he needs someone to bring him the nip. He can't even get up.
