Picking Fresh Lavender


english lavender

The English lavender is ready to harvest!  It's the most fragrant thing in my house.  In fact, I can smell it as I list and look at the photos I am posting.

But I have decided to dry this lavender.  I will rubber band it and hang it upside down.  When dry, I will shake and brush the buds off for later use.  English lavender is good for culinary purposes too.

I also picked some wild daisies and cornflowers at my parent's farm in Wisconsin.  I was there to wish my father a Happy Father's Day.  Wishing all fathers a blessed day.
