FINALLY


I got lavender!

I've been wanting to grow my own lavender for ever and day and so last year I bought myself a little lavender plant. It was planted and did bloom a little but this year it's exploded (wondering if it has anything to do with my getting over a fear of worms, therefore spending more time tending the raised bed....anywho) and so this morning I decided the time was right to cut some. I'm so happy with them, I just had to show you all how pretty they are. This is all I've cut so far. I've probably got enough for 4 or 5 more bunches!

Let's hope my tomatoes do as well as these did this year!!

So pretty! It's been a wonderful growing season so far, especially for flowers. I hope the veggies do as well.

The lavender is so purple! My lavender is more of a smoky color. Hmmm. Nice nice nice!

lavender smells so good in the summer, but be careful, it grows like a weed!

My lavender is just outside my window and it is huge too...but we have no worms. I've watched the hummingbirds and finches stop by....and the baby bunnies love hiding underneath. I wish I had grown tomatoes...since I won't buy them at the store.

Beautiful lavender! I also grow lavender, but it's not as brillant purple as yours.
