We're almost halfway through spring here in Australia and the gardens are beginning to take on all the familiar colours and perfumes. Lavender is an old favourite for Melbourne gardeners, with many varieties showing the distinctive spikes. They look great in vases as well. I tend to use them with long-stemmed roses and the lavender always makes a stately statement.
