Heaven Scent (Day 4)

1

My lavender is blooming!

I just love the stuff, and so do some of the creatures who visit my garden…I photographed this butterfly last year, basking in the lavender blossoms.

In addition to being one of my favorite flowers to look at, I adore the scent of lavender too.  What is so great about lavender is that not only does it smell incredibly good, but it does good too. With its uplifting and relaxing aroma, it helps me feel calmer when I am having a stressful day-and it can also help alleviate headaches.

My favorite sachet.  I keep it near my sewing machine.  Because sometimes I make mistakes.  Big mistakes. 

My roses are blooming now too-and so my garden, scented with the fragrance of rose blossoms AND lavender, truly is a heavenly place to be!

  5. I also love lavender. I have a recipe stashed away for lavender lemonade for when I have some growing in a backyard of my own.

  7. I love lavender too. It's beautiful and I heard that it can work as a natural deodorizer as well as a cleaner.
