I have been dreaming about fields of lavender.
Pretty rows of purple on a rolling hillside...
plants sweetly lining either side of a pea gravel path
or tall urns next to a front door filled with silver & purple loveliness.
Don't you love to see the pictures of row after row of gorgeous lavender?
It must smell absolutely amazing to be right in the middle of it all!
Surrounded by silvery sage leaves, purple blooms dancing in the breeze...
Lowes and Home Depot frequently have large selections of clearance plants
in the back of the garden center so I always like to check while there.
There were on only about 6 plants this time-
4 of them were Heather which would be good for filling in some of the areas
that didn't do so well with all the snow.
As we were mulling them over, one of the workers pulled
2 flatbed carts up behind us.
"Here's some more for you guys."
I glanced back and blinked several times as I saw an entire flatbed cart
of gorgeous lavender.
There were 26 gallon sized priced at $1.00 each.
Kinda makes the Costco Lavender look overpriced lol!
I wrapped a few with burlap and string and placed them
on the sideboard in the dining area-
There's something about trio's of lavender...
marching across the mantle, down the center of the dining table
in little clay pots on steps outside the door...
just love it.
Just a quick vignette~ it's been a bit busy here
so I didn't get too much done to share this week
but can't wait to see what you all have been up to! :)
