Spikes of Blue



"ladies fair, I bring to you
lavender spikes of blue;
sweeter plant was never found
growing on our english ground."

  2. I always heard it was good luck to plant lavender by your garden gate. I don't have a garden gate, LOL! Can lavender grow anywhere? I love the smell and I wouldn't mind it growing right outside my kitchen window. Wonder where I can find some...
