I have some lavender growing in my garden but have no idea if it's edible. Are all varieties edible?

Is it possible to share a photo of it? I think some varieties are more edible than others. There are a lot of things commonly called lavender, not all of them are actual lavender.

unless a pesticide is used it should be fine
