A photo and poetry blog - simply images and words
I remember those days.
Nice pic again Rose. It's like being there with you.
I've never looked closely at a lavender spike closely before. It is so beautiful. I love the way you've linked the purple with your great grandmother's hair rinse. Brilliant:-)
Gigi Ann,The good old days. Love your post on 'The Green Thing'
TUG,Thank you - It is amazing how some things so readily transport you back to your childhood days ;)Just like your charming post onThe First Kiss which I found rather endearing.
Ygraine,I only really began to look at things properly when I started taking photos - There was a great deal that I missed out on and regret not starting earlier.My great grandmother was a real character I was very much in awe of her and her purple hair :) She always had a bottle of lavender water on her dressing table.
Lovely!There are so many different lavenders.
Thank you Rachel. This is a dwarf lavender. It does not attact the bees as the other lavenders do but a sprig in the cupboard keeps the moths at bay - the leaves have a rather camphor like scent.
Welcome!! Thank you for your visit and for taking the time to read and comment on my blog.
