This week we received just enough rain to melt most of the snow that remained in our yard… and we even had an afternoon in the 50′s when I was able to venture outside without wearing anything made of down or wool. All of this gave me a slight peek into the warmer weather that is just a few weeks (or so) around the corner, and got me to start dreaming about spring flowers. Specifically- I can’t wait to get started growing lavender again.
Last summer was the first time that I planted lavender in all of my flower boxes on my front and back porch. I was successful with it in my garden where it grew into these huge and hearty plants that return every year. So I wanted to give it a try in our flower boxes- just so that I could run my hands through the plants each time I walked in and out of our house, and inhale the scent. It’s such a small and simple thing to do, but taking a moment to “smell the lavender” was a little pick-me-up that I did for myself all summer long.
So what are you most looking forward to growing this spring? Please leave a comment below and share!
