I planted lots of french lavender last year, and today I got a chance to make this wreath:


This Youtube tutorial helped me a lot: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2MFFQVRtAg

I barely had enough lavender to make one, so I filled in some gaps with succulent cuttings. I attached those with florist wire.

I still smell of lavender-- a bit nauseating after working with it for over an hour, but the finished wreath made it all worth while.

Scholars and artists...differ most importantly in the way their knowledge is come by.  Scholars get theirs with conscientious thoroughness along projected lines of logic; poets...stick to nothing deliberately, but let what will stick to them like burrs where they walk in the fields.

I love lavender. I don't know if I have enough to try this yet.  I bet it makes your house smell gorgeous.
