Favorite plants

This morning I am observing bees diligently working on the lavender blossoms. I suddenly wished to transform the back lawn into a lavender field, though I am restrained from acting on this impulse by an anticipation of Sadie’s disappointment.

Alternatives are under consideration, and I’ve daydreamed a list of my favorite plants for a specimen garden.

1. Lavender
2. Calendula
3. Wooly creeping thyme
4. Lemon verbena
5. Rosemary
6. Rose-scented geranium

It’s no accident that all are easy to grow in this climate and 5 of the 6 are aromatic.
