I thought I would try to grow lavender this
summer. I put it in a large planter on the patio.
So far, I have kept it alive!
The plant thrives on neglect, it doesn't like
much water, tending to, or fertilizer.
It is supposed to come back year after year.
I cut the stems with the flowered tops,
gather together and hang upside down to dry.
Future projects may include potpourri,
and/or lavender soap.
For now, I just enjoy the lovely fragrance.
Can you imagine what a whole field would smell like?
