Take Your Dog To Work Day

Also known as Every Day, so even though it was technically last Friday...

The lavender garden is almost in full bloom.  Once again I am unable to bring myself to cut even a small bouquet, so the "let's plant a huge lavender garden and harvest it for wool sachets" plan is, yep, once again a complete bust.  Luckily Saint Tim is a good sport.

I can't take a picture that really shows what the real garden looks or feels like.  I thought maybe putting something in for perspective would help.  I called in the trusty border collie sitting right outside the garden gate.


Kate took one look and was overwhelmed by the beauty of the garden the piles of little sticks (mulch) that were everywhere, just waiting for her to come play with them!


"This is the best playground ever!"


So I called in the trusty corgi who was only right outside the gate because she thought Kate was getting treats or something since she was so excited ;-).

I took a bunch of pictures and picked out a bunch of that bunch that I liked...and then couldn't narrow them down any further and I need to go feed Biscuit and Muffin so I decided to just post the first 10 pictures and tomorrow post 10 more.


You really can't have too many pictures of lavender.  



And bees.



And another surprise.


Tomorrow!

In the meantime...


Enjoy!

Lavender garden can't be a total bust if there are honeybees involved!
I helped my dad keep bees on the farm I grew up on so anytime I see one now I am thrilled!

It is a bee haven. Ours has mostly bumblebees right now and of course the fragrance is heavenly.
So far, I haven't cut any either. Maybe when it has dried out I can harvest it then.

LOVE the pictures of Kate! She looks VERY happy!

I harvested some of mine ONE year. At least you're feeding bees!

Still waiting for My Favorite Corgi to come and live with me :-) She's super cute in that 3rd photo.

Love Kate's happy smile!
I have started trying to grow lavender again. My 3 tiny plants are a long way from your scrumptious garden!

Linda said...

I love your garden! I have two lavender plants! I adore them...like you I can't bring myself to harvest them...so I walk and touch and am glad I have them.

Ah, I wish my cell phone could transmit the lavender scent from your photos.

Perhaps an Adventure Chicken is lurking in the lavender?

The pix of Miss Tilly is adorable; -) And Kate, well it's Kate! And I agree, you can never have too much lavender nor too many pix of lavender ♡ I can smell it from here!
