    Thanks, Deb! I’m already looking forward to next year’s blossoms…

    I hope my lavender blooms next year! I love the smell and the beauty of the bloom! Great shot!

    I love lavender! It’s even prettier when you get a chance to experience a single flower spike that way. Very pretty, and a welcome sight. It’s cold and windy here this morning.

    Happy Sunday

    Debbie, it really is a beautiful plant, isn’t it? And it’s definitely one of my favorite scents.

    Colleen, happy Sunday to you, too. It’s sunny here, but definitely brisk. Still, some sun is a welcome relief, since October was so grey here!

    How lovely. Unfortunately my lavendar didn’t do too well this year, and I have no idea why that was. Hopefully next year it’ll be better.

    Mandy, that’s the beauty of gardening…there’s always next year!

    Guppyman, thanks — I appreciate your stopping by!

    Ah, the last flowers of autumn! They evoke almost as much emotion as the first flowers of spring, but there is as much melancholy as joy, isn’t there?

    Beautiful. What kind of lavender is that? It’s very different than the kind I grow (I think mine is munstead and augustifolia).

    Nicely done a good shot.

  12. 12 inadvertentgardener October 29, 2006 at 10:14 pm

    Janet, definitely a bit of melancholy. But at least there are photos…

    Dragonden, you know…I’m embarrassed to admit that I have no idea.

    John, thank you, and thanks for stopping by!

    Great shot. OH BTW…we had a brown Caroline Mantid and a Green European Mantid on our shed last weekend. I will post a shot we got that is pretty funny. We are just hoping they did not eat each other.
    ps. I think I may get you a hissing cockroach for xmas. ha.

    Cole, that’s sweet! I hope they didn’t eat each other…that would be extremely problematic. Natural, but problematic.

    What a beautiful photo!

    If you’re ready to harvest you might want to try this and savor your crop all winter long.

    With good wishes,

    Thats an amazing lavender blossom, I don’t think I’ve seen anything with such a deep colour, almost irridescent.

    Julie, that is an incredible idea! How cool — thank you for sharing that with me. I didn’t get nearly enough to do that, but that’s something to keep in mind for the future, definitely.

    Roy, thanks for the comment and for stopping by — I was definitely pleased with how the photo turned out.
