Lavender

The scent of summer.


These plants thrive in the arid areas of my yard.

It is harvest time.


I love to hang the bunches all around my house to dry.

Some I put in water.

Abby was very happy when I hung a spray from her bedpost tonight.

That is gorgeous! It is amazing how different they look displayed in neatly wrapped bunches compared to the full flowing bushes.

WOW! Wishing I lived cloer to benefit from your harvest! Are you using them in wedding decorations?

Jennilyn said...

CLOSER! OOPS!

Ah, they are more impressive harvested. I should have done that with my lavender.

Your harvested lavender is much neater than mine. I should even out the ends and make them lovely like yours. I love lavender scent too and your bouquet is beautiful.
