Lavender Harvest

A few days ago I came home from a visit to friends with a large bunch of lavender to dry. It is definitely English lavender as the stalks are long and wafer thin and the flowers are highly fragrant and much smaller than their showy French cousins. Hanging from this old bit of gardenalia it shouldn't take too long for the bunches to dry and just in time for my mum to strip when she comes to stay. Just the start of what I will need to fill my Sweet Mary lavender sachets over the coming year.
