Lavender in my very own Garden !!!

As a little girl, I'd flip through the pages of the various garden magazines and inevitably come to a halt when I'd come across the images of the lavender flower. Seeing the images of this aromatic flower in the English gardens, made me fantasize about walking in the lavender fields in a white flowing cotton dress and a basket in hand, as I'd pick the most delicate of the flowers and take them home, only to set them aside on my nightstand and wake up to this goodness every morning.......... 
Lavender from my very own garden :)

Last year when I chanced upon these plants at the Old Lucketts Store spring market, my husband and I decided instantly that we'd like to include the lavender as part of our landscape. We brought home two 6" plants but only one of them managed to survive the winter's wrath. And now my Lavender is the crowning glory of my garden. I'm super excited about timing of the blooms as I have my plantaholic parents here with me and they too seem to be mesmerized by it :)
I snipped a couple of stems and brought them indoors and couldn't wait to give them the Sruthi twist;) Most of the time I've seen these being used in the country shabby chic setting and to see them in an eclectic Indian setting was a welcome change. Here are a couple of shots that I took for my favorite peeps and I do hope you enjoy the visual therapy :)

Take care and have a wonderful day !!!
