Lavenders







This is my first time to grow lavenders and they always make me feel relaxed! I was out all day today and just got back home. It's supposed to rain tonight and I rather stay at home. It will be a quiet night but the sound of rain....

You will see more beautiful lavenders
here and here...

Have a great weekend everyone! ox

Congratulations for growing lavenders! I have lavenders just near my front door... That smells so good but my children are afraid of the bumblebees...

Thanks for the mention! Now, should you manage to dry that beautiful lavender of yours, AND keep its purple color, would you share the trick?

Connais-tu le sud de la France ?
Je mets la lavande dans de petits sacs en tissu pour parfumer mon linge...
