I am feeling really grateful on this long weekend. For an extra day with my husband home from work, for time with family and friends, for beautiful weather (finally!) and for children who feel good and are behaving themselves.
My boys and I sat out back for a long lunch on Saturday and it gave me time to gather some lavender from my late Summer crop--to be honest, everything in my "garden" (i.e. my weed farm) is totally overgrown and neglected, and I haven't harvested any lavender this year yet. But I got enough from this second blooming to make a couple of small bundles. Aren't they sweet?
I hope you've had a great long weekend too!
