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.

Campanula ground cover

I love this plant, Campanula portenschlagiana or Wall Bellflower. It grows very well in my north facing entryway, under an overhang, so does fine in dry shade. The starry flowers and leaves are less than in inch across.

Lilac bouquet

Cut lilacs from the garden don’t last long in bouquets, but that fragrance! Intense and gorgeous.

Roses and orchids

Someone sent me the most wonderful flowers as a get-well bouquet. I am beyond thrilled. It will help speed recovery for sure!

Flower balls at Longwood

A trip down memory lane, to the other side of the year, the other side of the country…these huge flower balls are marvels of fantasy as well as engineering and horticulture.

Rose harvest

I hate cutting my roses since I can see the rose bed from the house and they look so lovely out there, blooming for me and any passers-by. But I had to pick them ahead of the big rain.

Lavender and bees

I just got a new camera, a Canon G9X Mark II. It’s been several years and I was overdue. Here is the first video I’ve shot with it.

Here’s a still shot. Pretty nice, don’t you think?
