lavender days


the rain has stopped and the lavender is ready to pick


I pick a bundle a day and bringing it into the house to dry


it hangs upside down for a few weeks - then I crumble the flower tops to use in soap, sachets, and neck pillows with flax seeds and rice


Patty at Magpies Nest has been busy making lovely lavender wands - check out her blog HERE

I just recently found your lovely blog via Pinterest! It is fabulous! I'm interested in photo transfer to beach glass and hope to attempt it very soon but need the courage to begin. Thanks for sharing all your creative endeavors. dix---

Beautiful photo.....looks like we have been doing the same thing :-)
I have mine hanging in my studio; I love the way they dry and press. So versatile....
