This last weekend, however, I was enchanted by this white-tipped lavender on the grounds of our hotel, L'Aurberge in Del Mar. At first I thought it was the light making it appear white, since we saw it first in the late afternoon, then in the early morning (there was a Starbucks across the street from our hotel, so yes, early morning!). But finally, the day I took these pictures, it was high noon and there was no mistaking it as true white. It was planted all around the entrance to this, the Spa. . . doesn't it just beckon you to go inside?
Sister likes it too, and we are now both very interested in this white lavender. It really is fascinating and would be so much fun to plant in the garden. I appreciate it when even one's choice in landscape plantings has a back-story and can personalize the home. Hmmm, I feel another post coming on!
In case you missed that darling in the first shot, that would be. . . well, that's my muse: My Margaret.
She loves the lavender as well.
