I have been

in a artistry crafty mood:
so I had to dry my lavender that was in my garden this past summer.

This is what I got.


This is what I made with it. The lavender smells good but not over powering, if it does I just put the top back on the little box.

Oh My Goodness Gracious...
Does that ever look beautiful and packaged so pretty. Sweetie you just did the most beautiful job ever. I bet it does smell heavenly.

I had some last year, but came home one day and it was all gone. It was in my flowerbed by the road, and do you know someone came by and harvested every last bit of it. Can you believe it? It was so beautiful, several really large ball shaped plants. Ofcourse almost all of us in the area work during the day so nobody saw a thing. Gone - yilch - nothing left. I sat down on the sidewalk and cried. It is pretty sad when you can't even grow plants. This year I am planting it in the back yard. There are only cactus out front now. Let them harvest those. I am ready for them. We have also put up cameras to keep an eye on the house. If they come back we will know who they are, or at least what they look like.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful lavendar, and maybe this year I too, will have some beautiful lavendar scents to share.

Country hugs sweetie and so much love...Sherry

Hi Patsy,
lavender just is one of my favorite herbs, and I try to grow it but i think the extreme cold has killed mine this year. But I will try again. I love what you did with yours. Thank you for sharing.
And as always thank you for visiting me and for leaving such a sweet comment. IT caught me off guard too.
Hugs and Blessings,
Sue
