  1. It’s lovely to come across wild plants like this. There’s a patch of wild mint that grows alongside one of our favourite routes, and just brushing against it releases its fragrance.

    1. I haven’t noticed any wild mint; the climate is probably too dry for it. Lovely to unexpectedly come across a patch of it.

      Good to hear! I didn’t do anything to make that happen; the WP gods work in mysterious ways. 😉

  2. Lavender seems to be thriving in these hot temps. We saw many wild plants on our recent trip to the coast. Maybe it is trying to cover up the smoke smell. Stay well Lynette. Allan

    1. Lavender does do well in dry conditions, but we would need a lot more of it to cover over the present smoke smell. It’s really become quite bad. We are going to Vancouver tomorrow, so will be out of it for a bit. Cheers.

    1. Lavender does do well in dry conditions (it will do well in poor soil, too). So if you have a garden spot where it’s difficult to grow anything, lavender might work. It’s also supposed to bring good luck. 🙂

  3. Lavender is one of those plants that just makes the world a better place 🙂 It is not found wild in the UK, although we do have some very fragrant herbs in old meadows (marjoram, thyme, salad burnet etc).

    1. I completely agree! Lavender is native to Europe, but here in the Okanagan Valley it has escaped people’s yards and has reverted to a wild state. The scent is wonderful and just brushing against it releases an intense aroma.

      I love those herbs. Yes, so fragrant and good with lots of different veggies. 🙂

I'd love to hear what you have to say!
