               English Lavender, Lavandula angustifolias (or)

                   Spike Lavender, Lavandula latifoli;

          I can never tell which is which. There is also a Spanish Lavender Lavandula dentata in this clump of 3 lavenders just outside of apt 38.

                   Josephine Bonaparte’s Lavender Mocha:  

          -Prepare in a drip-coffee maker one part fresh ground coffee to three parts crunched up fresh (or dried) lavender flowers.

           -Calculate the amount by assuming approximately one tablespoon coffee & three tablespoons lavender for each cup of coffee made.

          -Prepare an equal amount bittersweet hot cocoa separately.

          – Mix together.

          – Optionally, add a thimble or so of cocoa liquor.
