In a Vase on Monday: lavender dreams

It feels like it’s been way too long since I’ve had something clipped from the yard and brought inside to enjoy. What is even more concerning is this evergreen herb that’s been around all winter, waiting for a little trim.

Lavender dreamsI am happy to participate in Cathy’s, at Rambling in the Garden, clever meme: In a Vase on Monday. In preparation for our upcoming wedding in October, I found a bargain and got my hands on over a hundred mismatched, little clear vases. Some tall, some short, some round, and some square. This is one of them. They’re going to end up scattered around the house by then!

IMG_6898I put this bunch by the side of my bed. Lavender is thought to reduce stress and promote sleep. I’m not sure that it actually does but there is definitely something soothing about the scent.

Thanks again to Cathy for hosting today’s meme!
