My patch of lavender got away from me [this year]. Again?? It seems like only yesterday, I did a M A J O R rejuvenation on this garden!!?? I haven’t been as committed as prior years [when I was
young younger]; I would pick EACH and EVERY stem of lavender!!! NOTHING went to waste! 😦
Recently, I have encouraged ‘You-Pick’ with the public which, in truth, has not been very successful.
And so, rejuvenation of my lavender [Munstead and Hidcote] began, even this late in the season. It took me another three days to complete this task. My poor hands! I can hardly tweak or pull another weed in the garden(s). Next year, hopefully, we’ll have a bumper crop for pick’n!
I tossed some trimmings over the fence into the sheep pen… they ate some and enjoyed the aromatherapy treatments! I think of it as ‘moth-proofing’ their wool fleece.
I had one mighty ceremonial smudge fire… under a full moon, dancing wildly, naked!!! Oh what fun!!!
