Only reason I ask is that I saw lavender plants on sale at the Shop Rite. Surely that's a sign of something. The pansy flats are not out yet though, so probably it's too early. I have lavender wintering over on my front porch but I can't tell if it made it through one of the worst winters on record. I keep looking for signs of bluishness, but so far nothing.
My lavender mix from last year. I love lavender, it's one of the few scents I'm NOT allergic to. I bring it indoors and dry it and I've been known to sprinkle it in the bureau drawers. It's such a pleasant, clean scent.
