The second blooming of lavender is well underway. A slight bit of snow is expected this weekend. Last few years, once the snow was heavy enough to shovel, shoveling the sidewalk near them, you could smell the lavender in the crisp, cold air. Smelled just like lavender sorbet. This year for shoveling, I just may pack sugar, lemon juice and vodka in my pocket to make some sorbet right there on the sidewalk.
|At peak this past summer. On warm days with little wind,
you could smell them before you could see them.
|The row of lavender is like having a fence of bees
protecting the rest of the front yard garden.
