Last year, I wasn’t really with it. I saw the lavender bush in my garden grow, flower and wither somewhat. Only then did I decide to ‘harvest’ the lavender, but it was certainly past its best for turning into lavender bags. I chucked the dried, unused, unfragrant stems away a few days ago… As I hung my fresh crop to dry.
I love the beauty of the colours and look forward to turning it into something special. Meantime there’s still more on the bush. Maybe I’ll harvest that later, unless I’m already leaving it too late. But still, there’s only a certain number of lavender bags you can make, right?
As you can see, it’s not the most arty of photos- drying in the same place as my clothes go when it’s too cold or rainy to put them outside!
