I'm with you on the lavender. But French lavender isn't much good for drying I find, though it makes a spectacular mass of colour and smell in the garden, where I have two good sized plants, covered with bees every time you go out there. But I much prefer ours, and hang a few sprigs, tied with raffia, in the bathroom and kitchen, and shove a few stems in a pretty jug and just leave them, no water, to dry. Some from last year, on a dresser in the hallway, still smell when you sniff them. And I live in an area surrounded by fields of Norfolk Lavender, gorgeous!
lovely photos, i can smell the lavender from here!cheryl x
I love lavender but my yard is small and the hubs likes his lawn better. You have a lovely blog and I look forward to reading the older posts this summer during my school vacation. (2 more days until we're out)!!
I'm a lavender lover, so I can imagine how your house must smell.Divine.That up close and personal shot of the lavender is amazing.xo jane

I try year after year to grow lavender but it must not like my yard! I sleep every night on a lavender pillow and it's divine!Your photos are beautiful especially the close up one...enjoy your day ~Sarah
Such beautiful images. You've inspired me - gotta go clip me some lavender!
I always look forward to your posts, your home is so lovely! I love lavender also and am growing some on my deck but not really enough to clip. Does it grow back after you cut it? I'm a beginner!
Your photos are so bright and lovely. Lavender is my all time favorite scent.
This is another lovely reminder for me to grow lavender.
Visiting from Coastal Charm. I adore lavender! Your photo of the sprigs with the scale is delightful.
Lovely photos Deb, of a favourite plant. I stumbled across a great gal tub at a collectibles fair on Monday and have plonked a pot of lavender inside of it, right at the front door. It looks great and I get a whiff everytime I walk through the door. Robx
Gosh, my lavender hasn't started flowering yet....you are way ahead.Love your enamel jug and container too.Julie x
Oh the sweet smells of Summer. Lavender is a favourite.Best Carolyn
What type of lavender is that? I've read that "Grotto" is the most fragrant? I'm a total lavender addict, and can't get enough of it in my house. I adore the scent!! :)xoxo laurie

Hi Deborah, your lavender looks so good I can almost smell it. Mine is still green, apart from one plant which I nabbed to make lavender jelly.Thankyou for taking part in my giveaway, I'll keep my fingers and toes crossed for you! Love Linda x
Beautiful! There's something so vintage about lavender - almost as if it bloomed already old.
I love lavender! It is so soothing and so pretty...Your pictures are beautiful, I can just imagine how wonderful it smells in the kitchen! =)
