Lavender's blue,dilly dilly...

...lavender's green... do you remember that song?  I don't remember all of it , but that song is
always running through my head whenever I see lavender.

I decided to take a few photos when my lavender was in bloom a week or so ago.
I didn't pick it because my plant really isn't large enough yet, but I still wanted to share
it with you.

It has the most fragrant scent when it first buds out and that is the perfect time for picking.
{before it actually flowers} 

I love it in any form...flowering or not! :)

For some reason it looks more blue in this photo than lavender, but that's okay. :)

Praying you have a wonderful Sunday and a Happy Fathers Day to all the amazing
Fathers out know who you are!! :)

Lavender is my favorite flower and scent! I picked some a week or so ago and made lavender bread -- you don't need more than just a few tablespoons and it's so good! I like making lavender tea with the buds too! Your pictures are lovely!

Your lavender is just beautiful. Mine are kind of straggly.

I love that you reminded me of that song. I haven't heard it in forever but can hear it in my head now.

I do love lavender as well.

God bless you, Amy

Both your lavendar and your photos are beautiful,Sandi. I have a plant right as you walk down the steps from my front porch and every time the dogs go down they rub against it send off the most aromatic lovely scent:-)

Hope you are enjoying the start to Summer.

Oh man Sandi, I love your header and all the beautiful photos of lavender! It looks awesome.

My lavender is now just getting it's bloom and I will be harvesting it soon before it flowers. It is so hard to cut because as much as I would love to enjoy it longer, I love to have it for sachets.
sending hugs....
