Last week, I babysat my two youngest granddaughters while their mama and daddy were out of town.
My daughter surprised me with a bunch of lavender from her yard and some cherries from her neighbor's tree
that has fruit filled branches hanging over into my daughter's yard.
I was thrilled!
Lavender is a favorite of mine, and the lavender in my yard had an unfortunate demise and didn't bloom.
Thankfully, lavender plants are relatively inexpensive, so I dug up the old and planted some new.
I've bought and planted two English culinary lavender plants, one French lavender, and two Spanish lavender.
Dried lavender in a zinc watering can is perfection to me.
Now, I just hope I don't kill the lavender in my yard again!
