Lavender fields of West Sussex!

Leave a comment

Well not quite! The lavender in my garden has reached the point when it’s at its best for picking for drying. Just at the point when the flower is ready to open, so you have to time it perfectly.  Each summer,  I pick and dry my lavender in readiness for my handmade lavender bags.

My local village fete is taking place next weekend, & so in anticipation, I collected a basket full last weekend and left it in my garden shed to dry. I had made a batch of ‘lavender stacks’ as I call them (little stacks of 3 bags tied together with ribbon) ready for filling, so I spent  Sunday  finishing these ready for sale. Such a pleasurable task as the relaxing sent of lavender filled the air!IMG_1463IMG_1462IMG_1614IMG_1613
