Hump Day Haiku - Lavendar

lavender jennifer

Lovely lavender.
The memory of my daughter
continues to bloom.


This lavender plant was bought at the Cascade Cuts plant sale last spring, because it was named Jennifer. My daughter name. We lost her three and a half years ago. It was so lovely with pale leaves, that I had to have it. The blooms, when they arrived, were more blue than lavender on long sweeping stems.

We planted it in a pot on the deck and it's been blooming for months, and continues.

I have not been able to get a good picture of this plant, so this inferior photo will have to do. 


Submitting to Haiku My Heart Friday.

I started doing Hump Day Haiku with Carla Sonheim's Silly classes... and decided as a challenge for myself, I'd continue. And so I have.
