L is for Lavender

My hubby and I were listing garden-themed "L" words last night and came up with a few. I ended up choosing lavender because I always want to include a picture in my posts, and it's one of which I can take a picture since I have it in my garden. I wouldn't say I settled for it because it is quite wonderful. It smells pretty, looks lovely (especially when in bloom), and has a nice calming effect. Are you sold?

The blooms aren't at their peak

A little closer. Can you smell it?

Come back tomorrow for "M", the last letter of the garden theme. For the second half of the alphabet I will switch to a new theme--fashion! After all, the main theme of my blog is fashion. I just get sidetracked with challenges of all sorts. What do you expect of someone who is wishy-washy, indecisive . . . someone who hems and haws?!?
