Drying Lavender



As I said, there's not much fancy going on at our house right now. The living room has turned into a drying parlor for lavender! It's in full production right now, with some varieties blooming a littler sooner than others. It's warm enough to dry the lavender outside, but the sun fades the color, so it's best dried under cover. I've spread cotton sheets out on the floor and bundles of lavender are spread in groupings on the floor. They are drying well and the fragrance is fantastic! The more they dry, the more fragrant the room becomes!

  3. A room full of lavender would be lovely! I have two lonely lavender plants in my planter, when I walk past them the fragrance is wonderful.
