Last year our lavender bloomed three weeks earlier, but it was worth the wait. It seems to be particularly beautiful this year. We have about fourty lavender plants that the former owners planted. Apparently deer don't care for it, which prompted them to plant LOTS of it.
It seems that most plants are behind schedule here, thanks to our cooler spring. Only the peas and lettuce have benefited from it. The warm weather seems to be finally here though and the squash is growing like crazy!
