Lavender Grosso

I am lucky enough to have surprisingly good conditions for growing lavender. Most of it is pretty much spent at this time of year, but the lavender grosso blooms latest and is still nice to pick and dry. Intensely fragrant, it’s good in little organza bags in your closet to repel moths. But maybe I should make a wreath?

Just harvested lavender grosso, ready to dry for sachet or cooking.

The recent warm weather in Seattle has been beautiful and sunny, true summertime for me.

Sweetpeas in the garden

This year my sweetpeas have done so well. I’ve learned that they really do need loose, fertile soil and a lot of sun. Even in this heatwave (Seattle is having a record-breaking five days over 90), they are blooming so beautifully. They seem to be most fragrant in the late afternoons and early evenings, after the sun has faded.

Garden sweetpeas.

Big blueberries

I fertilized the blueberry bushes at the right time this spring, and I wasn’t stingy. They really liked it. These are almost the size of a quarter. We use mosquito netting and clothespins to close up the edges because the birds would eat them all. I think a pie is in our future.

Pink oxalis

A very nice volunteer plant in my Seattle garden, grows in a clump with those cute clover-type leaves, blooms OK in shade or sun.

Purple pansy

The slugs and snails have not given the pansies much peace, but what with the warmer, dryer weather and beer traps, I think there will be more coming in.

Shiny cherries

We have a small cherry tree that has not had cherries for awhile, for different reasons. Hubby put a big piece of mosquito netting around one branch clipped close with clothespins, and we actually have some ripe red ones. So very shiny and sweet.

Fresh red cherries, so very shiny
