Lavender dreams

Flowers are happy things

And none more so than lavender.

Lavender bee copy

It’s bright and energetic

Perfuming the air

With its fragrance and colour

And vibrancy.

    For me its not the visual colour but the colour scent of summer -sweet peach, pine scent green et al.

    Happy five years and shtufffs. Lavender must be for 5 year anniversaries if not it should be….makes sense doesn’t ?

  14. Sometimes one of my colleague at my school leaves a bunch of lavender flowers in a little pot overnight in the room. The fragrance the next morning is amazing. Beautiful photos.

The link is still open and I would be honored to have your beautiful photos linked to my post… not to mention draw new readers to your exquisitely magical blog!!!
