for the love of lavender
This summer, the lavender has been growing beautifully
in my garden structure.
It has been attracting bees, and partitioning on garden from the rest of
Since all the flowers were almost gone,
it was time to cut and get ready for drying.
I was able to get 5 bundles of lavenders,
I tied with twine and hung them to dry
for about 2 weeks.
At first I thought it would be perfect in the laundry room,
but unless you like the smell of hay drying,
the garage is much better!
To remove all the little "grains"
I rubbed them together
and collected them all,
I have more than 6 cups!
I will be able to make many little bags
to perfume and preserve all
of our clothes and linen.
After all, lavender has many properties!
Here is a beautiful embroidery my sister made for me.
It is cross stitched on linen.
