Lavender

I love lavender -- its color, its perfume, its flavor.
It makes me dream of Provence: 
of endless rows of purple blossoms,
of hand-milled soaps and fragrant sachets 
in lingerie drawers and under pillows,
of delicious floral-scented ice cream dripping from crisp cones...
Our homegrown lavender literally pales in comparison.
