I've been spending as much time as I can in the garden. It's good to be out there again, even if I'm not quite up to doing everything I want get done. No digging yet but I can pull weeds - and there are a lot of those!
Picking lavender is one of my favourite things to do. It takes time to cut each stalk and allows me to daydream as I go along. The bees like the lavender too but we get along pretty well together. I make sure I leave lots of flowers behind for them to enjoy. There's plenty to share.
Lavender is my favouite scent to use around my home. I dry the bundles that I pick from my garden to hang around the house. I also use dried lavender buds to make sachets for my linen cupboard and am always looking for lavender scented products to use. The handmade soap above is from Post Road Vintage and it smells wonderful!
Like many of you, I've been scrambling to find another way to follow my favourite blogs since Google Reader is shutting down in just a few days. After trying out a couple of different readers (amd making a complete mess of my blog list in the process!), I finally decided to use Bloglovin'. It was super easy to transfer from Google and so far I'm liking it. A lot. You can follow my blog by clicking the Bloglovin' button on my sidebar.
See you soon!
