Lavender's Blue

Lavender's blue, dilly dilly, lavender's green,
When I am king, dilly, dilly, you shall be queen.


A warm but grey Sunday afternoon spent amidst a sea of purple and grey-green, snipping stalks of French lavender to hang in my city bedroom to the lazy murmuring of the bees. Peaceful.

  5. I love your photos, I love lavender, it grows beautifully in my garden! I'm new to blogging, my dear friend Susan introduced me to your blog and suggested I start blogging - so I did! It's a work in progress as I get the hang of it. If you have time I'd love to have you follow my blog - thank you! http://oceanbreezesandcountrysneezes.blogspot.com/

  7. Ohh, how beautiful. Lavender is my favourite summer scent. It doesn't much like our climate here in Scotland but I always have to have lavender in my garden, even if it means replanting it every few years. Thanks for these heavenly photos.
