The evening light enlightens the garden with a warm and soft glow. It was a perfect moment to finally collect lavender and to prune the lavender at the same time.
Our youngest has helped me with cutting the flowers from the stems. It diffused such a wonderful scent. A calming scent that is typical summer!
Our pumpkins love lavender too! They are abundantly growing together with the lavender. I like the color combination of the soft grey purple lavender and the warm yellow pumpkins. They perfectly fit together!
Afterwards I treated myself with a cup of fresh lavender and mint tea. The perfect mix to calm the digestion and the mind. I’m ready to go to sleep now… and I will take a a handmade lavender sachet with me to bed.
