|My Lavender Bush in Full Bloom|
Since the lavender is blooming at the same time as my newly-planted, extremely fragrant, climbing rose bush; and because it is blisteringly hot outside, I decided to try making lavender/rose petal tea.
I placed the petals from one rose, four sprigs of lavender blossoms, and four cups of cool water in a mason jar and placed it on the back deck in the blazing hot sunshine.
It did not change color - perhaps because I did not use boiling water. However, it was highly fragrant and very refreshing over ice.
