The plant is blooming in a weird time (September through February) and giving just 2-3 stems per week but its alive and it makes me happy :)

Lavender in my garden
A couple of years ago we drove 4 hours up north for a lavender festival to see those beautiful purple fields. While people from cooler areas might not see it as a big deal, for us in the low desert with hot and dry summers it is very special. I bought a little potted plant of lavender as a souvenir and planted it in my garden later with not much hope for it to survive.
Surprisingly, the lavender bush is thriving and happy! I am still learning how to care for this but I was so happy to gather some flower stems.
