Lavender plants thrives on neglect and can be grown in hot, sunny, and dry environments. The fresh flowers are tasty in small doses when added to salads, honey, butter, lemonade, and even shortbread cookies. Personally, I can’t get enough of lavender soda.  Click here if you want to get my favorite Dry Sparkling Lavender Soda.  If you’re feeling crafty, try adding fresh lavender to your meals or make an eye pillow using the the fragrant dried flowers.
