As dog is man’s (and woman’s) best friend –
I find that Lavender is the garden’s. A loyal giver, and a hard worker – it offers much to its surroundings. Its strong sturdy stalks support delicate sweet flowers.
Its soft blue grey goes along and gets along with everyone.
It rebounds well from adversity, spreads heavenly perfume…
expects little, and gives a lot.
Happy to be a supporting player –
but fully capable of leading the charge.
It is a perennial friend…
and a gracious host to all.
Lavender. Friend to the garden. Qualities to emulate with friends.
“The roots of all goodness lie in the soil of appreciation for goodness.” ~ Dalai Lama
