I bought my first lavender plant this year. After researching growing lavender on the Internet, I was dismayed by the climate best suited for this little lovely. Dry and sunny, I live near one of the Great Lakes, not so sunny and definitely not dry. Glad I gave it a try. It still survives, in spite of a wind storm that tried to disassemble and exterminate.
Painted in oil on a 1/2 inch, 8x8 canvas board. My favorite painting this year.
