Lovely Lavender

Everything about lavender is appealing to me.  The leaves – long and lanky.  The flowers – upright and slender.  And oh, best of all, the smell – subtle and clean.  Here’s one of the lavender plants in my backyard:

I gave it a haircut and and harvested the flowers.  Here they are drying in my basement:

In about two weeks they will be ready for me to sew lovely lavender sachets.  What a beautiful and fragrant sewing project it will be!

  1. Thanks for the kind comments. Lavender likes to grow in the West because it is hot and dry. It is hardy in zones 5-8. Might be worth a shot to try it though. My favorite types are \”Hidcote\” and \”Munstead\”.


  2. How awesome! I wonder if I can grow lavender in my zone? I found your blog today from PR and am ashamed to admit how long I've been lurking on here. You have created an enjoyable space!
