Flowerful Stuff

Flower of the week: lavender

You might know cut limonium in its less tongue-tying title of sea lavender. How charming – the lavender of the sea! If you think you’re experiencing de-ja-vu right now you’re right. Well, kind of. We’ve covered the sea side of this beautiful flower already. So instead I’m going to linger on the flower that cut…Read more
