Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Lavender Bottles

Do you have a lot of lavender? I sure do and I'm grateful to my friend Karen (aka Keggy on ABY) for sending me directions on how to use it to make lavender bottles.
Cut long lengths of lavender. Select 13-14 stems and gather them with a ribbon tying the ribbon directly below the blooms.

Wrap the two ends of the ribbon around the blooms and tie off at the top.

Bring the stems up over the blooms one at a time.Tie the stems together at the top and trim the stems to the same length. Hang in a closet or place in a drawer for that wonderful lavender scent.
I have to give credit for the lavender bottle directions to this lavender craft website.
