The hunk and I dream of one day retiring on our very own farm. We envision a 3 bedroom ranch-style home with its own wraparound porch. The house will sit on at least 5 acres somewhere in Northern California. Part of the vision was to have my very own lavender garden.
During our vacation in Maui, we visited a lavender farm nestled in the hills, and I got a glimpse of what it would be like to grow our own lavender farm.
So, when we visited the Napa Farmer's Market a few weeks ago, and found several varieties of lavender, we bought a few to test our retirement hypothesis.
We didn't realize that there were a lot of different kinds of lavender plants and at some point, everything looked the same.
We are looking forward to gathering up our lavender blooms and making bath bombs, brownies, and what nots. I read somewhere that lavenders complement rose plants, and we have a lot of those.
Hope you are having a relaxing 4th of July weekend!
