My mom has some beautiful plants and flowers in the backyard, including lots of lavender. I've been trying to get some of it for years. I was over my parents for my father's birthday last night and my mom gave me this beautiful lavender plant!
The scent is out of this world! My mom dug it up, roots and all, so I can plant it. I got home late last night and wasn't going to do any gardening, so I rinsed off the roots, did a little trimming here and there, then put it in a vase with some water. This morning the leaves had perked up and it looks wonderful. I'm tempted to leave it in the vase. I might cut off a piece and leave it in a vase and plant the rest. What a great plant. I just read that it's part of the mint family. Who knew? You learn something new everyday.
