We grew lavender in our Georgian back yard. In fact, it thrived in its sunny location. Though I adored the way it looked, I never particularly cared for the scent though many of my friends loved it. In fact the phrase, "laid out in lavender," refers to the old custom of using it in burials.
This week we finally had a day over 50 degrees and my mind wandered back to those beautiful plants. Here are a few examples of lavender in different shades and applications. Any lavender lovers? Anyone growing lavender in their gardens or have it in their homes?
