MONDAY MAGIC ..... Lavender's Blue Dilly, Dilly .....

Lavender says Summer .....  fragrant, blue, violet, lilac flowers, sometimes blackish purple, borne on spikes and found in acres of fields and gardens around the world.  
English lavender yields an essential oil with sweet overtones producing a beautiful fragrance.


















Ooh ..... how did that get in there ?!!!! { well, it is lavender/blue in colour and very magical to me !! }

I have decided to start ' Monday Magic " ..... a collection of beautiful images with a theme. I'm not promising ' Monday Magic ' every Monday { as regulars to HOME know, I'm a bit of a sporadic blogger, to say the least !! } but, I'll do my best !!
Have a great week everyone and make it magical.

  1. Am I right in thinking that adding lavender to any beverage makes it medicinal? The young fellow is as charming as ever, and grown so much.

  15. Thank you for those beautiful, beautiful photos! I have the feeling the soft lilac sends its soothing qualities right over here (and boy, I need that at the moment...). Balsam for eyes and soul.
    I still have an image in my mind: a restaurant in a very old country house in the middle of Hannover, and they had thrown lavendel onto the wooden stairs, and with every step the sweet modest charming scent cracked up under your feet.
