How Delicious Is Lavender?

You'll have to ask my girl friend Anna.  She was thirstily devouring this hybrid lavender last Sunday morning while I was doing yoga poolside.  It was in the mid 70s, sunny (as you can see), nearly no breeze  the plant movement you see is from her wings beating rapidly.  The little dots that are moving near the bottom of the frame are honey bees, who love the lavender as much as Anna does.

And to think that last Easter, this was a single, $6 one quart pot from Elgin Nursery (a mile to the SE of our home)... and the palm to the left was less than 2 feet tall with only one trunk.  Abundant sunshine (UV), warm weather, some water... and you cannot stop things from growing here in the Sonoran desert.
