Lavender




Sprigs of lavender that I cut to bring inside....





Lavender is one of my favorite scents and it's worth fighting the bees for. Be careful with those bees, they don't play well with others. I tend to cut these later in the evening, after they have settled into their little bee beds.






I put some by my computer too....that way I can chat with you and enjoy the fragrance all at once.


Just perfect.....

I sure wish someone would cut some lavender and put it by my computer, whine, whine! I haven't been out to smell the flowers since I got my cast! I'll just sit here and imagine the wonderful smell!

I love all of your photos! They're just beautiful!!!!! Nothing smells quite as wonderful as fresh lavender!

By the way, I have to say how much I love those vintage clocks in the last photo! They're one of my weaknesses!!!! :)

I LOVE your lavender! I've always wanted it and never planted it but it is on my wishlist for my next house.

Julia @ Hooked on Houses said...

Oh, how lovely!

I was just scrolling through your photos from various posts today and sighing because your home is so beautiful. :-)

Julie-Ann said...

I love all your arrangements around the house Michelle. I am afraid in this house I had to give up on the lavender. I am so allergic to bees and they do seem to think I taste delicious:(
