I just love saying the word “laaaaaaaavender” — so calming.
Maybe we should spell it that way! 🙂
Alice Hoffman – a FAVORITE. Have you been to the Lavender farm?
Yes, I was there the beginning of September, when I took the photos on this post. I plan to go back next summer, early, when plants are in full bloom.
It’s my favorite fragrance, soothing to the mind.
…and to the soul!
