Lavender luxuriates

Lavender flourishes in many parks and gardens around here. Perhaps the soil is conducive - the outer suburbs of South London used to be an important area for the commercial growing of lavender. But in this exceptionally rainy year, like many species, it's grown and spread with an astonishing lushness. Difficult to walk down any residential road without brushing against the bushes overhanging garden walls and trailing across the pavement and releasing gorgeous waves of scent.
