Lavender to Remember

Lavender from the Rose Garden at Havenwood
They say that scent triggers the most profound memory centers in our brains... That scent is the key to recalling moments in our lives. 

I was out picking some lavender on Sunday morning as a reminder of our fading summer Rose garden. Next year it will return and with more roses too! But I am going to hang on to these pieces and treasure them up for the next six months until spring comes to save the garden - and me - again. 



I hope that you too are out enjoying the beautiful autumn weather! Smelling some lovely scent to carry you through the winter.

  1. I don't have much lavender growing yet, but I did plant a little cutting garden of tall zinnias in the summer and am enjoying may bright and colorful bouquets right now! :)

    1. I do agree, Donna! What a gift.

      Thanks for your visit! I have nearly fallen off the blogging bandwagon, but I miss it too much to let it go yet!
