I have two colors of lavender plants the darker purple and lighter lavender. Through the years, the baby plants have taken on both colors and are now mostly a nice medium purple.
A couple of years ago, we ate lunch at the restaurant at King Estate Winery in Oregon. The view included beautiful lavender beds. I have seen fields of lavender, but they are just fields; where the King Estate lavender were artistically arranged. With inspiration like that, I wanted to make my own lavender beds to enjoy from my front deck. It has turned out to be a bit of work, and will take a few years before the baby plants I moved around to mature. I’m sure it will be worth the wait.
Besides their beauty and delicious scent, I love that lavender is deer- and drought- resistant. And the aroma! Just a brush against the plant emits a heavenly smell.
