Flowering Herbs

My basil and mint plants have both sprouted flowers. I'm hoping that pruning them back will help make them useful for a little while longer -- my mom has actually volunteered to take them in when we move (my parents have a nice sunroom which is great for wintering plants).

Anyway, the basil flowers are a pretty shade of purple:

The mint, on the other hand, is not particularly attractive:

For reference, some much earlier photos of the plants are here
