  1. I love Lavender. All of your books look so wonderful! I am planting my first herb garden this week and I'm kinda nervous about it. I have several different things I'm going to plant but the lavender is my favorite! I'm wanting to have an herb garden at my cabin but I'm going to check tomorrow at different times of the day and see if I'm going to have enough sun for them. I may have to plant them here around my porch. I hope not, I really want to have them at the cabin.
