It's lavender time on the prairie
The lavender bed is in full bloom
And the lavender has been full of bees
Somewhere, there is a hive full of lavender honey!
(Oh, to follow the bees to see where that hive is!)
But I've been busy too
with the lavender
Making lavender bottles
to scent linens and lingerie
to give as gifts
An old pitcher on the breakfast room sideboard
Is a good repository for the bottles I've been collecting
As is an old platter on the breakfast room table.
I had the church ladies over a couple of weeks ago
for a "show and learn" and they all took home at least
I posted about that evening
Weaving my bottles is a rite of summer.
