Lavender


I just love the smell of lavender, especially when you brush up against it, then it seems to emit a much stronger fragrance. Lavender Oil is good for helping you sleep and relieving stress.

When we first moved into our house, there was a proper Old English Lavender Bush, and I used to collect the lavender sprigs and put them in a small netting bag and keep in amongst our clothes.

Unfortunately, when we had our garden landscaped, we tried to keep some of it in a tub but it just didn’t like it and gradually died off.

    1. Thank you, Margaret…. It was such a shame it didn’t take in a pot… as it was pure English Lavender.

      1. They’re not long-lived plants, so don’t beat yourself up.

        1. I’ve been growing mint, parsley and sage in little herb pots on my windowsill … It was only the other night that he looked at me and said… ‘Jesus girl, I didn’t expect them to last this long!’

          To be honest neither did I. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€
