A to Z: ‘L’ is for LAVENDER

It’s April! That means it’s time for the ‘BLOGGING A to Z CHALLENGE’. Everyday this month (except Sunday) bloggers will be blogging to a theme, using different letter of the alphabet – running, of course, from A to Z.

I’m blogging about MEMORY GARDENS: botanical tributes to celebrate our loved ones. Most of my writing is about keeping memories alive, so a spring garden is a perfect match to celebrate loved ones memories. Come join us all month for 26 different posts about Memory Gardens … and then, maybe plant your own tribute to remember your own special person.

Lavender is a good addition to any memory garden, used to signify love or devotion. It’s fairly drought tolerant, making it a good choice for the water conscious gardener. It doesn’t like to have its feet wet, so place where drainage is good. You’ll be blessed with fragrant blossoms, reminding you of your loved one.
