A few weeks ago I decided it was time for the annual refresh of the lavender in my flowerstone. If you look back here you can see last year's.
Lavender is one of my favourite flowers, well a herb really, so we have lots of it in the garden.
It's great for attracting bees and sometimes it seems like the whole lavender bed is buzzing.
I just fill the holes in the flowerstone with the lavender stems.
Several stems in the bigger holes so there's plenty.
And here it is sitting on the kitchen windowsill.
We have a few others pieces from this Blue Clematis range of Uig pottery; three jugs, a garlic pot, a jam pot and a large oven dish. Looks like some of these are discontinued.
Summer isn't officially over just yet but I'm so glad that the Autumn is very nearly here. I'm relieved to just stop waiting for the good weather to come and enjoy the beauty that comes with Autumn. Last year we had a very plentiful plum harvest that you can read about here, here and here. This year's harvest has already been picked and eaten; all three plums! Actually there's a fourth plum but it's too high to pick so it's still on the tree.
I'm sorry I haven't had much time to read all your blogs and leave comments. Hopefully I'll soon get there. Thanks for the comments you leave on my posts. As always, I really enjoy reading them.
