I was at my parent's farm in Wisconsin over the weekend. The sunflowers and Queen Anne's Lace were in full bloom. Also the yarrow and black eyed Susan. You know, I just realized how many of the flowers are either purple or yellow. Anyway, things are growing like crazy out there -- including the chickens.
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.
