Lavender harvest and a little country
For the last couple of early evenings and still many more to come, I have been harvesting my many bushes of lavender. Planted right in front of my home, under our windows . The smell this time of year is heavenly. Of course where does my mind go...if its not 'Mousehole village' in England I get transported too, its France! I best do some travelling or not....It all seems to be right here at my front and back door. I plan to store and keep my harvest for lavender sachet's, hand creams and to flavor sugars for gifts. Just outside my kitchen grows a glorious English Country garden. Hollyhocks and bluebells, foxgloves and roses. Added to my garden this year are some beautiful Chinese lanterns. Just look at the folds in their petals. Each petal being of a different shape. They look so vintage. Summer here is Bright, warm, full of fragrance... delightful truly happy.
A happy day to you
