Lavender Harvest!

I've taken the opportunity to bring my lavender flowers in for drying today, while it's been nice and dry.  The dogs have been munching on the bits I've dropped so hopefully, they'll smell nice for  a while!

I love the smell of real lavender..............funnily-enough though, I can't stand any artificial lavender air-freshener or perfume

I wish we had that it must smell great

What neat edges on your stalks!  

Mine's been up for ages and really should be taken down any time now.
I roll the bunches in a pillowcase to get the heads off, then it's knitting Lavender Hearts and Bags for (banned word, too early) presents

It just isn't the same is it WS?  

Mo, I get the edges neat by just chopping em off once the bunches are tied up - otherwise they'd look like the dog had been playing with em!  

I love lavender and lavender essential oil - brilliant stuff!
