Saturday I volunteered at the first Victoria Lavender Festival. It was a lot of fun. Fields of lavender and so many beautiful animals. Alan has a horse Brian, sheep, geese, chickens and roosters, border collies, peacocks and white peacocks. I hope I didn't miss any. I love animals so it was a real treat.
There was a short break in the booth I was manning and I dashed next door to the lavender plant sale. I am not usually one for plants in exotic colours. I like plants to look the way they are 'supposed to'. OMG. It was a yellow lavender. Lavendula Viridis. I could not resist and it is already planted in the garden. I put this one in the flower border. I know the purple lavenders attract bees and pollinators, so I am tucking them around the yard in strategic places. The yellow has been placed simply where I think it will be beautiful.
