I did a bit of gathering before the "hot heat" (TV Weatherman's term)
gets overpowering today...

Technically, it was too late to gather the lavender.
It had dried on the plant.
Still there was a bit of fragrance to it...


  1. Good gathering! I'd not heard the term hot heat before but love it!

  2. It's so hot here too. I wish I'd gathered my lavender. I think I waited too long too.

  3. It's been hard this last week to accomplish much in the gardens so I understand getting out for the little time available early. I think Lavender retains it's smell way after drying too.

  4. For lavender, the fragrance stays also in the leaves. I like the coneflowers with the statue behind.
    I wish you a nice coming week.
