For the Love of Lavender

I love to buy lavender soap and bouquets of dried lavender at French markets.

I love to use lavender as a centerpiece to fill the air with fragrance.

I love to learn about lavender planting from Annie Greer Baggett.

I love to bake lavender scones at home.

Most of all, I love to grow lavender for the wonderful honey bees.
Our neighborhood lost two wild bee hives over the winter. One hive is being rebuilt. 
My garden is far too quiet this year without all of the honey bees.
