Beautiful Versatile Lavender

Lavender is such an amazing versatile flower to have in your garden. For starters, it’s beautiful blooms attract pollinators like butterflies and honeybees as well as being naturally resistant to damaging bugs such as aphids. If you live in an area where deer are abundant (like I do) lavender also acts as a deterrent. Deer, skunk, rabbits and other small mammals nasal passages get irritated by the strong scent and choose to leave the plant alone, perfect!! IMG_0381

This particular lavender plant (pictured above) my husband and I picked up on a trip to New Hope Pennsylvania last May at Peace Valley Lavender Farm. Such an adorable town to visit if you get the chance!

Nonetheless, you can also cook with lavender, make your own eco friendly products or dry the lavender stems and make a bouquet that’ll add a nice and amazing smelling addition to your home.
