Lavender

Something to soothe the senses in mid February's bleak cold. Lavender from one of my favorite artists and farmers Katherine Dunn. I ordered this bundle right after the end of January and it came wrapped beautifully and fragrantly to my door soon after. Katherine is known for her paintings and has been interviewed here by Penelope Dullagan, but did you know she has an etsy shop too? That is where I found this bit of springtime which did my soul and senses good this frigid month.

Ooh what lovely lavender, thank you for the link to her shop. I think I might have to buy a bunch myself!

Did you see that my hubby bought "Buzz" for me for Valentine's Day? What a sweetheart!

The smell of lavender reminds me of where I live. It is so beautiful when it grows in long rows against the upturned dark earth.

Hey, I recognize that painting! :) I bet the lavender smells heavenly. It looks so beautiful. I like how you've arranged everything. I have similar beach altars throughout my apartment during the summer months. THIS summer I'm going to buy myself a bunch of lavender, too. It looks so beautiful next to all the sea shells, art and corks. Ahhh...Summer...!
