Great shot Patricia, I have that lavender - thanks for putting a name to it.
Grows in lovely, strange directions.

BTW...you don't live in Cardiff Heights do you? I have an aunt who lives there and you're verandah looks familiar! Don't mean to be a stickynose - tell me to mind my own beeswax if you like...

Sidonie, and I left mine at our last place, or more specifically, killed the bits I had brought with me. Fortunately I had given some to the neighbour there, so after 3 attempts to get cutting going with much neglect, I think I finally have some. :D

That and purple cats whiskers I have had huge trouble tracking down, so am extremely happy that I now have them both again.

That's okay, Enrico. It always helps to have the name of what you're googling for. :lol:
