So are we counting lavender plants yet? Because by my count, I'm now the proud owner of FIVE lavender plants. I went from zero to five in three days! Isn't that the funniest thing? All coincidentally!
I'm not sure where in the yard I should put them - my last lavender bush was not in a sunny enough spot, don't lavender plants like a lot of sun?
And in a couple of weeks, a neighbor of mine who occasionally sells teas - she's having a lavender themed tea gathering. She makes her own lavender soaps and lavender water sprays as well. I'm not sure what the meaning of all this heavy infusion of lavender in my life is all about, but I'm pretty sure there's a cosmic meaning to it all. By the by - when I was nine years old, same age as Julia - lavender was my favorite color in the whole wide world. I still think it's the prettiest name for one of the prettiest colors. I've been trying, unsuccessfully, to pitch to my husband for years that we should paint our bedroom a smoky grey lavender color, but he seems unconvinced. ???? Life is too short to settle for builder's beige, I believe.
