For as long as I can remember, I have had an aversion to lavender. I’d like to think that my tolerance levels have got better over the years but I still find myself cringing at the colour or wrinkling my nose at the smell. Worst of all, I am not even sure where my totally unreasonable hatred stems from – it just exists. So I was a little perplexed when I found myself stopped dead in my tracks by a lavender beauty on Veranda. Logic dictates that I should be repelled by it, but strangely, I find it incredibly soothing and for lack of a better word, “pretty”. Of course I am fairly sure that as usual, the kitchen won me over and the rest just fell in to place.
