Today I’m going to take time to bid welcome to the newest addition to my culinary and herbal household. Her name is Lavender and she was a holiday gift from my aunt, though she just arrived a couple weeks ago. She’s already beautiful and seems to be enjoying her sunny spot in our living room.
See how she’s already showing some of her color? These spikes were there when she arrived and are beautifully fragrant. It’s amazing how fresh, growing lavender has a spicy and minty note to its herbal fragrance. I’ve already harvested a few spikes that were starting to wilt and used them in a vinaigrette earlier this week. She’s already enriching both the atmosphere and the flavor of our home!
