Loving Lavender

"Art is unquestionably one of the purest and highest elements in human happiness. It trains the mind through the eye, and the eye through the mind. As the sun colors flowers, so does art color life."
~John Lobbock

Creating this new little knitting project has me thinking about Lavender. As I watch the variegated yarn weave colors of purples and whites, I'm transported to a sunny field in the United Kingdom, where the Lavender plant grows aplenty. Wouldn't you love to go there and have the sun rest on your back and drop tiny strings of highlights into your hair?

As part of my summer planting, I've already promised myself a container herb garden filled with Lavender plants. All of the waiting and anticipating is driving me mad and I do so wish that the days would get a bit longer and warmer as to allow me to partake in my simple pleasure.

...sigh... Until then, I suppose I'll continue to knit this handy washie, and dream of a summer that will eventually arrive.

I love the lavendar. It looks so pretty. I bet you hate getting them dirty when you use them.

I want to plant a container garden this year. Besides lavendar, I'd like mint, Basil (definately!)and chives.

see you Monday.
