Fields of Lavender
A favorite springtime joy in my garden is when the lavender blooms. As a Master Gardner, I enjoy many flowers and have quite a variety around my home. Still, none compare to my love for lavender. Though they are not showy, spectacular blooms, their delicate fragrance and sweet purple buds promote mindfulness. You must bend down and brush them to release the aroma. The call me over for a smile quite often.
I have included a tutorial on Lavender Wands. I made 2 of these for my girls when they were babies and tucked them away in their baby boxes. I found them last year, still in tact and fragrant. Click here for instructions.
