Lavender


I was working in the garden the other day, cleaning out around one of my lavender plants, dreaming of Spring. Even though we are in the middle of Winter, there was a scent of lavender in the air. Where was it coming from you ask? From my sweater.


I store our wool sweaters, gloves, scarves and hats with bouquets of dried lavender tucked between the layers. Lavender repels moths and keeps our woolens smelling fresh. And it sure beats storing them in moth balls! Do they even sell those anymore?
Until next time.....

I love lavender and it grows so well here in dry Colorado. I need to clean up my gardens too, and trim back the lavender before it starts growing. The foliage always smells nice.
