Lavandula

Culinary use
I didn't know this about culinary lavender:
Culinary lavender is usually English lavender, the most commonly used species in cooking. As an aromatic, it has a sweet fragrance with lemon or citrus notes. It is used as a spice or condiment in pastas, salads and dressings, and desserts. Their buds and greens are used in teas, and their buds, processed by bees, are the essential ingredient of monofloral honey. (Wikipedia)

How interesting, I didn't realise any of the above. Love the way they look as if they're all about to fly off on little purple wings.

Mooi shot, heb de blaadjes weleens in een couscous salade gedaan en ik heb ze op een mooi dessert gezien/ gegeten en in een bonbon.
