When people think of lavender they think of places like Provence or think of English Lavender, like Yardley. I grew up with Yardley's English Laveder. I never saw it growing though. One thing I intend to rectify next time I go to England. I also want to go to Provence so maybe I will see both someday.
The colour is wonderful and the scent divine.
Imagine the scent of the fields
Lavender is used for so many things. Soap, candles,sachets,powder and perfume........so many things. The colour is just so perfect
It is beautiful in the garden.
Then there is the soap and candles
It will attract the hummingbirds
There are so many things Lavender sugar and cookies maybe. Yes it can be used as a flavour too
Well there are so many beautiful pictures out there of Lavender that its hard to choose them to do a post. I have a Facebook Page called Bluebell Woods, I post a lot of them there.
Linking with Smiling Sally at Blue Monday...with much thanks
This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.
