Normally Daisy Quilts hosts Colourful Fridays, but for the time being, Bev of Kainga Happenings has been chosen for the special job in her absence!
This week is Lavender. I used to have a French Lavender plant in the front garden until it became way too woody. So I took to it with secateurs last year and cut the lot out.
Now I have no Lavender in the garden at all! I do have hydrangeas and also agapanthus to fill the blue colour loss, but they are seasonal and only last for our summer.
Here are some of my hydrangeas coming into colour. The agapanthus are budding, but not blooming yet!
I also have a selection of Lavender books. This one I bought at the Library this year for about $1.00!
It is Lavender by Tessa Evelegh, with photos by Debbie Patterson.
I also have Lavender, Sweet Lavender by Judyth A. McLeod and The Essential Lavender - Growing Lavender in Australia by Virginia McNaughton.
For a long time my husband and I dreamed of a farm called Lavender Hill, with Lavender growing in the garden. This may happen yet!
I was going to add another photo, but I can't get it uploaded in the direction I want! So enjoy Lavender Friday and check out the other links.
