Lavender

We have a lot of lavender at work and I pick some branches before the gardeners cut it off! I've used it to make some decorations...the same objects I decorated with rosemary...

















...the zinc crown...



















...the heart wreath...

















...a small bouquet...

















...and a very big one....

























Some more lavander to pick in these days and some other decorations to make with it...I adore lavender scent and it's very relaxing...I'll spread it all over my home!
Happy week end!!!!

Thank you for comments at my blog :) It is great to have a good husband - and I appriciate every day. How beautiful with all the lavender. This year I bought many, and hopefully I can make som wreaths aswell. Of course, they will not grow so big as they do in Italy - but, I enjoy the little flowers aswell. Have a nice weekend. Hugs Hanne

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful... I´ve no other words! :)
I would like to have some lavender in my pots, but the lavender I planted last year didn´t work out as it should be. Now I see everywhere in public places in towns and villages around lavender growing and sometimes I think secretly that I should go when it´s dark and pick some of those lovely flowers, hihi!!
Have a sunny weekend, see you soon;
love, Marjolijn

Vado matta per la lavanda, ho più cespugli che mi invadono il giardino ma non mi dispiace !
Hanno invaso persino il mio blog!
Bell'idea, ormai non so più come smaltire tutte queste spighe!
Avete delle bellissime cose!
Ciao

Cara Vale,

Beautiful arrangements - as always!
I love the scent of the lavender as well. My dogs play around in the garden. They have a special love for the lavenders, come in with the perfumes all over, but leave the poor plants crumped. I will have to replace some of them for next year. Buon week-end e bacione! Ingrid

Dovevo immaginarlo che le gabbiette erano una tua passione vista la foto del tuo blog!!!

Non entriamo in elugubrazioni mentali sul significato di questa passione. Le gabbiette sono belle, con le candele dentro , i lumini . Appese ai rami d'estate per le cene all'aperto...

La corona e la lavanda sono un accostamento perfetto. Molto bello davvero!
