As Rosemary is to the Spirit, so Lavender is to the Soul.

For your Monday soul…

“And lavender, whose spikes of azure bloom
shall be, ere-while, in arid bundles bound
to lurk admist the labours of her loom,
and crown her kerchiefs witl mickle rare perfume.”

William Shenstone The School Mistress 1742

    I love lavender! Mine is not quite flowering yet, so thankyou for this sweet reminder! I wish I could smell it through the computer screen 🙂

    • I’m glad to be able to remind you and I wish I could send you some smells. My two small bushes remind me of the glory of the acres of lavender in Provence (in a very, very small way.)

      Have a sweet Monday.

    My soul needed that this morning.
    Sadly this post has made me realise that in our gardening cull we have lost a lavender plant… I’m hoping more can be uncovered further up the garden!

    • Isn’t it great when just the right post shows up when you need it? I’m glad this one helped. When we move, I won’t have any lavender again, at least until I get some planted again. 😦 I hope you find some more, too.


  3. I love lavender fields – it looks like a wonderful purple world.

    I planted lavender this year and can’t wait to harvest and bring that scent indoors! ❤

  5. Your lavender is beautiful! My lavender didn’t make it through the winter. I didn’t cover it and we’re borderline zone 3/4.
