Own a small ranch in NW Montana. The property is a jungle of plants/flowers. I can tell you just about anything horsey, still learning about plants😄

Lavandula

@SikoMa That’s so strange. Close as we are I can not get lavender to grow well. The bright side is what I do have the deer do not eat.

Thank you Leslie. I have made a body scrub so far, I have a scent warmer I put a few drops in, and I'd like to make lotions, and eventually lavender truffles😉😋 @lesliecole49

@SikoMa - I know, adulting is for grown up people, one of which I’ve never been. Sorry life has been kickin’ your butt. It’s been kickin’ mine here & there right along with you. Here’s to better days! Good to hear from you. What’s that white stuff you sprinkled on your garden? Looks a lot like snow! 🌴🌺🐾

I don't have anything worthy of a picture either Dar. I just throw something in now and then. But you have horses and mountains. I don't think any of us would complain if your pictures had no flowers

OK, not a moth Jeff @jeatacake @columbiariver. Here is what I think it is... #skipperbutterfly http://eol.org/pages/182872/overview

Maybe it's a mutant, like the turtles. @jeatacake
