Lavender?! In September? I have a lot of lavender, and because I love it, I added more new plants last year. Those new guys were the first that I harvested in July. I like to make lavender sachets, wands, bouquets. There are quite a few things you can do with lavender! It seems that the plants had lots of immature stems, which have continued to grow throughout the summer and were just ripe for the cutting for my arrangement!
It was such a treat working with the lavender. I. Love. Lavender. 🙂
I have one Autumn Joy plant at my front gates, which I wouldn’t normally like cutting from. But this one stem was broken and on the ground. I couldn’t just leave it there!
The snapdragons were planted from seed for me by my father-in-law. He can grow anything from seed or cutting, unlike me! I have some mixed colors and just picked out the white ones.
What fun it is to gather flowers from the garden! Thank you Cathy from Rambling in the Garden! You can see other arrangements linked to Cathy’s page at: http://ramblinginthegarden.wordpress.com/
Have a good week!
