Garden Weaver

Today, I was a garden weaver. I did something I've wanted to do for a long time. I wove a lavender wand.

I cut some fresh lavender...


It was approved by Salsa, my sweet and helpful Airedale...


I tied ribbon just below the flowers, bent the stems over and began weaving.


It caged in all the beautiful smelling lavender buds and created a wand that I can place in a drawer, closet, or just set it somewhere to enjoy it's simple beauty and lovely scent.


Lavender is heaven scent!...


It was fun to sit on my patio, enjoying the beautiful weather, birds singing, and the scent of my project. It was simple to do and I learned from it so I think the next one will turn out even better. I planted another lavender plant a couple of weeks ago. I now have three different varieties to play with. Mmmmm...

nice job! I've always wanted to try that - but now I'm not growing lavendar, so maybe later...

That is really neat, Cheryl! I can practically smell the lavender from here!
