The prize of my garden is a tiny, almost inconspicuous, little flower that could very easily be missed by most people … my lavender. Each and every year I look forward to its spiky purple flowers that to me, smell like heaven. Today, I picked the first of these little beauties.
Lavender has many uses but what I grow mine primarily for is lavender lemonade. I skip the hibiscus and usually use honey instead of the sugar for my favorite summertime drink. The only problem is that it seems to disappear very quickly!
Do you have a prize plant in your garden? Do you have something special that you make only during the summer? I’d love to hear all about it!
