Wellfleet Lavender

The garden smells of lavender at this time of year. Lavender grows well thanks to the sandy soil. Here on Cape Cod, we have a lavender farm in Harwich, which some of my guests have visited in the past. My guests from the south of France told me they have lavender in their garden, but cannot enjoy such a great variety of other flowers: snapdragons, cleome, black-eyed susan, zinnia. They took photos of my garden this morning, but how much nicer the display would be had there been more rain! Meanwhile, Catherine, our cottage guest, is really enjoying the bunnies, butterflies, and bees.
