Last week,  I babysat my two youngest granddaughters while their mama and daddy were out of town.
 My daughter surprised me with a bunch of lavender from her yard and some cherries from her neighbor's tree
 that has fruit filled branches hanging over into my daughter's yard.
I was thrilled!
Lavender is a favorite of mine, and the lavender in my yard had an unfortunate demise and didn't bloom.

Thankfully, lavender plants are relatively inexpensive, so I dug up the old and planted some new.
I've bought and planted two English culinary lavender plants, one French lavender, and two Spanish lavender.

Dried lavender in a zinc watering can is perfection to me.

Now, I just hope I don't kill the lavender in my yard again!

still following,


  1. Love lavender! Your bundle does look perfect in the zinc pitcher.

  2. I have one lavender plant outside....I keep wondering how to propagate it. You've inspired me! I think I'll go out and cut a few springs and bring them in!

    1. Rebecca, I hung the bunch upside down for a couple of days to dry them.

  3. Your lavender is lovely, Elizabeth! I dug up most of my lavender plants and planted new ones so there won't be much to pick in my garden this summer. :) Love the zinc watering can too!

    1. That's what I had to do also. I'm happy to have this bunch from my daughter.
