We are slowly working on the Lavender gardens. PINE NEEDLES will they ever end. Our weather is still quite cool still freezing at night. Last night two of my kids helped me and I really did well on cleaning up one garden. It really is a lot of work. Sometimes I wonder is it all really worth it. There is a huge amount of work here. I am going to do a bit more today.

Dreaming of Lavender. I have started raking pine needles. Oh how I hate pine needles. I am not too sure but in one of my gardens it seems I may have lost a lot of Lavender plants. It is a bit early to tell but some of it looks down right unhealthy. Sigh all my good intentions gone with the snow.

Ahh I can feel the Lavender begin to stir. Deep down in it's roots it is anticipating Spring. Unfortunately so is the grass and weeds. Amazing how those weeds can be so strong.
I have been striping off the Lavender buds from last years harvest. The smell in  the house is amazing.
I have been having quite a lot of fun making Starfish, mixed medium starfish stuffed full of Lavender. The starfish are stamped, sprayed, beaded, sewn and stuffed.
