Lovely Lavender

Howdy! Despite 75% of the weather that Ohio experienced this spring being crappy, the flowers and greenery have all been magnificent. One of the crowning jewels of our yard, and something that my dad is particularly proud of, is his lavender bush. CHARLES planted his lavender when it was just a tiny sprig years ago. And, this year, it really is at its biggest and most beautiful. Take a look:

Our ginormous lavender bush, that looks more like a tree now, stands by our back deck and envelopes it in a simply gorgeous aroma. It provides the perfect amount of shade from the hot sun to make reading on the deck more pleasant, and it makes sitting underneath its blossoms feel like you are in your own secret garden.

It’s so crazy how something that was barely a foot high a handful of years ago erupted into such a magnificent focal point in our garden. This lavender bush/tree really showcases my dad’s green thumb and it makes me proud to have it as a main feature in our yard.

Is anyone currently preparing a flower or vegetable garden? What are you growing? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

  1. Love the smell of the lilac, I had a purple and a white, someone dumped a chemical and pretty much killed both bushes. Each was around 45 years old. Sad that someone had to be a jerk about it.

  2. Love the smell of the lilac bush every spring. It is sad when they are done for the season. We had two different bushes, a purple, and a white lilac. Each one had their own smell. Each bush was around 45 years old until someone dumped a chemical into the ground killed each bush. Still loved the sight each spring
