Kindred-Spirits Who Love Lavender



Problems with our ISP have slowed down my blogging, so I will be playing 'catch-up' for awhile as I post things that have been saved away for awhile. Today let's take a trip back to Karen's Lavender Farm. The fragrance, the beauty, the inspiration --- all wonderful! But the best part of experiencing a place like Karen's farm are the people! They are kindred-spirits, gathered from near and far. It's interesting how a common denominator like lavender can make everyone instant friends! Conversations, idea sharing, crafting together, and simply sharing a smile or nod all meld together in a place like Karen's Lavender Farm --- providing a sense of kinship and joy to the day. Most of the pictures posted today need no explanation. Simply enjoy the comradeship and feel a little piece of it for yourself from wherever you are in the world. Enjoy a blessed day!

  8. well, all 10 stems of my lavender are blooming now. Perhaps next year the bush will thicken up a bit.

    You changed your header, and it even has little moving parts. very nice.

    I wanted to ask you a question that I'm sure you have addressed at some point. I looked under your labels but couldn't see anything.
    My cousin told me that Lavender oil keeps away mosquito's. I thought if anyone could in fact verify this it would be you.
