Scents and scents-ibility

I went out a few days ago to pull weeds (or dig them up if recalcitrant) and spotted one of my lavender bushes looking absolutely strong and beautiful! Originally there were three but the other two didn’t make it for some reason, making this one even more appreciated. I have another, older one near the house too. I noticed today that yesterday’s and last night’s rain beat it down but perhaps the sun will revive it. This is Spanish lavender, not the tall plants of Provence, but I appreciate them just as much or maybe more because they’re mine.

    I have had my lavender plants just die for no reason at all when there are others close by who live on

    It’s lovely, isn’t it? It grows naturally in the wild here. A friend gave me a cutting of a different variety from her garden yesterday to put in a vase. I was disappointed that it had no smell.

    Beautiful – lavender fields in Provence always attract attention both in terms of smell and sight. Second best after women who use lavender ingredient in their fragrances. 🙂

  4. Beautiful and fragrant – both good things. Enjoy!

    Great photos. I’ve tried to grow lavender here, French and English, but it doesn’t do well. Will look for the Spanish variety. Who knows, maybe it’ll work.
