Lavender another taste and scent of Provence.
I ask myself, can I take another shot of lavender?
Can I continue to wax lyrical about this purple prince?
I have and I am going to… I can’t help it.
Along with the scent and taste of the fig, it is the distinguishing feature of our garden in summer.
This year, the lavender is rich and vibrant… much more so than last year… it’s abundance and it’s intensity colours everywhere I look.
We have planted many small groupings in the last few years… here and there, to break up the green of the box hedges and shapes.
The large bed that we planted many years ago, continues to flourish.
As one who loves neutrals more than anything, I surprise myself.
Provence is like that… it changes you when you least expect it.
Lavender as a scent is one I prefer mixed with others.
I burn several fig candles to one lavender candle.
Have you tried this? Fusing the scents is a wonderful way to create your own fragrance ambience.
Lavender, another delicious scent from Provence… xv
