I discovered that I really, really missed having lavender in my garden. So I bought a three small plants today and put them in a pot. Nothing smells quite as good as a lavender plant; it is one of my favorite scents. There is something that is both energizing and relaxing about it.
Every year that we lived in New York, I'd taken cuttings from my original small plants and planted them out; nearly every flower bed was edged in lavender.
This garden is much smaller; it won't take me nearly as long here.
