Lavender

17/06/2012

Unbelievably, I harvested the first big batch of lavender today. The shrubs looked gorgeous: I have two which frame either side of the front gate, but harvesting the flowers not only gives me a ton of dried lavender to use for various future projects, but it also encourages the herb to keep growing and I should get another bunch of flowers in a month or so. Last year I had two big harvests; could I possible have three with this weird weather year this year?

Lavender, Shasta Daisies, Hostas

Smoke bush, Lavender, Sunflowers
