Lavender Love

Lavender Love


I realized there are many of you out there who share my love for lavender. So, I thought I'd share a little something especially for you. These are currently growing full bloom in my back yard.

Come with me on a trip to the heart of the Provence. Close your eyes and imagine we are sitting on a lovely French patio sipping some chilled Chablis. Take a deep breath and allow the lavender scented air to take control. The entire sky is reflected in a deep shade of purple-blue from the huge lavender fields all around us. Enjoy the stillness around you. Open your eyes!

Glad you could come away with me and take a short break to rejuvenate your senses.

  7. Ahhhhh, my lavender just started to bloom today! Doesn't look as lovely as yours yet, but it should come into its own with a bit more sunshine.

  8. Mine should be in full blossom any time soon. Only two weeks ago they were still so small.

    And now have to look up all the recipes I collected last year to make dishes with them: ice-cream, cookies ....... and gather courage to actually make them. Something for the MM #13 ????

  10. Thanks for coming away with me folks. Hope I was able to take you away on a relaxing trip for a few minutes. Thanks for your comments on the picture, I really appreciate it! I just got this developed and have framed it. It is now hanging in my kitchen and it really looks great.
