In the morning I planted a few Columbine flowers, and Mondo Grass around my cottage, and while I was relaxing inside I had a very precious encounter.  One of our tiny bits of magic, a hummingbird, flew into the cottage. The back door was shut, and the tiny creature fluttered about, not knowing where to go, and flew up to the window. I quickly opened the back door, hoping this would help the bird find its way out. It continued the flutter anxiously, hitting it’s beak on the window. I lifted the curtain,  hoping it would move from the window.  It stopped flying and sat on the window pain, so I cupped my hand around it’s tiny body and held it…..Oh my gosh, what a precious moment it was, holding that tiny creature, it laid so still and calm in my hand!……… Then quickly I walked out to the patio, looked down at the tiny bird to see if it was alive, and so quickly it flew out of my hand…That was one extremely special moment that I will never forget! What a miracle those tiny creatures are! I love this garden that I get to spend so many wonderful hours in!! I hope you will plan to come visit our lavender farm this Mother’s Day weekend, and sit on the patio with me, and let time slow down a bit, while we watch these lovely tiny hummingbirds flutter about!

Happy Mother’s Day to all our wonderful Mothers!!

  1. That happened to me too, many years ago! The only way to get the little guy out was to throw a towel over him then carry him outside. I will never forget the magic of holding such a tiny vibrant living creature.
    Congratulations on having such a beautiful garden that attracts these beautiful birds!

  2. Hi Jacqueline,

    Best to you!!

  3. Had lavender lemonade in Louisville, Ky. Delicious. I have always been interested in lavender and its uses. Since there are many varieties of lavender, is there just one (English) for culinary use? Also, do you sell the plants?

  4. Hi Betty,
    You can cook with any English lavender, but the only French lavender for cooking is “Provence”. We sell lavender plants at our Upick farm only. Sorry we don’t ship them, but I bet you could find nice English lavender plants at a nursery near you 🙂 When I make lavender lemonade and tea I prefer to use the Signature Blend “English”, because it adds a delicate lavender flavor. Provence is much more pungent, and I like to use is in our HRL Spice Blend, Sel Gris, and our Lavender Pepper Jelly 🙂

    Best to you,
    Lavender Lady
