When we moved into our current house four years ago, there was a small weedy area surrounded by pieces of slate that our landlord said we could use for a garden.  So, after we unpacked the boxes, we went off to our local nursery, Greenstreet Gardens, and chose a bunch of plants, a mixture of flowers and herbs.  One of my husband’s choices was some lavender, which has come back bigger and more luxurious each year.  When it is blooming, it is filled with bumblebees.

I haven’t decided whether to call this “Lovin’ the Lavender” or “Bee Heaven”.
