This picture is from my garden, but softening has been added.
It is rather full of flowers right now and the bees are loving it.
The real colors of my garden.
It looks a bit wild along the front walk.
There are some that don't like to walk past it because of the bees.
Lavender relaxes us. It soothes our weary souls.
Love is like a beautiful flower which I may not touch but whose fragrance makes the garden a place of delight just the same. ~Helen Keller
Wikipedia: Lavenders are sometimes put in medicine, too, and sometimes to prevent infection - such as lavender oil, that was used in World War 1 to disinfect walls and floors of the hospital. As the folk wisdom says, lavender oil is also helpful to headaches when rubbed on your temple, and lavender tea helps you relax before bed time. Lavender also is very helpful when applied to insect bites.
Do you love or like lavender?
Do you find the scent relaxing?
Each year I love it a bit more.
Take time to savor each and every day and find the beauty
in your surroundings.
