It would be fair to describe me as a lavenderaholic, if there is such a label. I can never get enough of this botanical that possesses most therapeutic scent in the universe.
I have a dozen lavender plants scattered around my garden, but I still like to tour the commercial acres of lavender this time of year. Last year I visited the Lavender Bee Farm – this weekend we decided to pop into Matanzas Creek Winery, famous for their gardens, lavender farm, and acclaimed chardonnay.
I convinced the kids it was worth the half hour drive because they could go hunting for bunny rabbits, ala Elmer Fudd. We didn’t spot any, but at least the idea kept them busy while Mr. CG and I strolled the grounds.
