A Bug In Love..


The lavender is starting. 


We harvest all summer for Missing Goat jam and jellies.


I'll be slipping this under her pillow tonight. 


Must have been a bug in love.  Intoxicated by the smell of lavender perhaps...

Aw, what an adorable little leaf! Someday I'd love to grow lots and lots of lavender. I bet it tastes just heavenly in your jams. I had a lavender lemonade last summer and it was quite seriously the best lemonade ever.

I love lavender. It is hard to grow here in the south. The picture of your little girl is precious! Carla

How wonderful. So many things to make with lavender! And such an adorable photo.
Doesn't nature give us so many fascinating photos? A bug heart in a leaf. It shows how much you appreciate your surroundings. I would probably have missed that entirely.

Mine has a bit to go too, but the leaves smell lovely when the wind rustles through them. Love it!

I love that lavender thrives here in AZ. My French variety has been blessing me for quite awhile now, bath tub, kitchen even my ice cream maker have all been infected with its glorious scent.
Have a lovely lavender weekend.

Great photos. My lavender is not quite ready yet but I always look forward to the harvest - so many uses for that wonderful plant.
