Lavender

lavender, sweet lavender;
come and buy my lavender,
hide it in your trousseau, lady fair.
Let its flovely fragrance flow
Over your from head to toe,
lightening on your eyes, your cheek, your hair

Cumberkand Clark Flower Song Book 1929

One of my favorite flowers, which grows abundantly in our front yard. Its scent is calming and aids in sleep. I massage a couple drops of lavender essential oil on my hands at night and own an array of lavender lotions (some could call it a collection!).

Beautiful lavender photos. It's such a popular flower and so pretty, although I'm not very fond of the scent myself. But I like it in sachets in my linens, faintly giving off the odor of the garden.

I love lavender, I have two plants in my garden but I think I need more somewhere. Hope you´ve had a great weekend! :-)
