This lavender grew for several years until it met with an untimely accident. It was fragrant and came back reliably. I have no idea how to take care of lavender, so I guess it was lucky that it lived as long as it did! The center photo is one of my all time favorite trees, the Kwanzan cherry tree. This view is from our front porch and, while not quite the same area as the first four photos, it is in the general vicinity. It is so very pretty in the spring. Cherry trees are susceptible to several diseases, and I am not sure what affected this tree. It was another very sad day when we had to take it down. I would love another one if we can find a good home for it. The area where it was is now our granddaughter’s faerie garden. To the right of the cherry tree, in the patch of mulch is a daylily. The next photo shows this little daylily in bloom. It is a reliable bloomer and, since red is my favorite color, I love it!
