Lavender's blue dilly, dilly....

Morning girl's

To cut or not to cut is what I asked myself!!! 

The bees are loving my lavender that I planted down the path last year but there's so much of it it seemed a waste to let it go

so yesterday I picked a basket full and tied it into bunches and hung it up to dry in my craft room

(please excuse Lulu's tail she's camera shy!!)

it makes  the room smell lovely  and there's still about another four bunches to pick I will leave some for the bee's though as I know they love it, wish I knew where I could get some lavender honey from imagine that spread on your toast.....mmmmm.

Are we all enjoying the lovely sunny weather? I hate to say it but it is a trifle hot for doing "housewifey" things so I thought I'd raid the fridge for all those unusual shaped jars that have a scraping or two of pickles and chutney's and give them a good wash out so I can store my ever growing stash of buttons and bit's and bob's in them and I have a couple of crafty thing's to make for my partner in the magic ball  swap.

Better get on then,

love Lucey x

I love lavendar - just added a new one to my collection this year.

Am leaving it for the bees for now. Though there are more of them on our 2 huge hebes than the lavendar at the moment.

Oooh bet it smells lovely round yours! Would love to grow my own lavender, maybe I will add it to my list for next year! xxx
p.s I've also got lots of coffee jars washed and ready to be turned into craft storage :)

What a great idea to bring the outdoors into the indoors. Also a great use of your beautiful lavender, I have used dried lavender before in my sewing projects and it smells divine. Bx

The lavender is stunning, it's one of the things I have difficulty growing, I think my soil is too rich... don't the flowers look gorgeous hanging upside down :)
