I continue to be obssessed with lavender -- I love the color, I love the fragrance, I love how pretty it looks when dried and bundled.
I visited another Lavender Farm this past weekend in the same area where my in-laws live. My mission: to buy lavender plants for my garden. Yes, I actually have a garden now.
