Mary, who some call Minerva, gave me her bay laurel and her lavender when she left here to live with her daughter Alex in Washington, D.C..
I miss Mary every day. She is the kindest, jolliest soul I know.
She is also my crafty friend. We made candles, and sachets, and jellies, and magical eggs and lavender wands together. Sad to say that without her, it doesn't seem to happen any more. The rest of us are just too lazy.
The lavender flowers are ripe, Mary!
Come home and inspire us!!!
