This spring, I was overjoyed when I found a gigantic bush of lavender cropping up in the flower garden. Yesterday, I harvested it all, and made little posy bouquet's for gift giving this holiday season. Not quite sure how to sustain their life the best.. for now, they are just hanging to dry on the kids easel.
Eliza is learning cursive handwriting - I was pretty distressed to find out they aren't teaching it in schools anymore. I found that laminated chart for .25 cents and a garage sale and so we're off on that adventure.
Tips on prolonging thier life? Will they just need to be rejuvinated with a bit of essential oil come gift giving time? What do you guys do with lavender? Tell me please, I still have more out there to pick!
After I made these, Eliza wanted to make a little bouquet for herself. She went out into the garden, and picked the flowers of her choice. With a little help wrapping them from dad (how sweet is that?) she now has a few of her own little posy's to share with friends. These flowers won't last very long, but she enjoyed picking them and wrapping them, so it was definitely worth the 20 minutes it took for the activity. :)
