Cottage industry

Back in the autumn we harvested the flowers from the lavender bushes in our front garden. After hanging them out to dry in bunches around the house I made up some organza bags filled with the flowers and decorated them with ribbons and beads as Christmas presents. This used up only a small amount of the lavender so I decided to get some more bags today to use the rest. To my surprise I had enough for 20 bags so at least I can be sure that my clothes drawers will always be fragrant now!

      Much better idea than I had once years ago which was to just put the lavender directly in to the drawers .... which of course resulted in lavender bits getting all over everything!

      Beautiful these small bags of lavender. I believed that they were buttons of red rose, or small birds ready to fly away !
      Lovely shot
