It's that time of year again. Actually here I suffer most of the year round. This is not something I bargained for when we moved here... but for the flowers I can put up with it. I just think I need to get stronger anti-histamines.
Anyway, the lavender has been gorgeous this year and the finca is so full of it I decided to make a few little gifts for friends. Lavender Bottles as we used to call them. The Spanish wild lavender is not as strong smelling as the French variety but it does have a scent.
I picked a few stalks from each clump. you'd never know that I had taken any at all.
And with some ribbon from the stash turned them into scented wands for drawers or wardrobe. I also added a little french lavender that was given to me as a gift some time ago to boost the scent, but then I found I didn't really need it.
Once they were all bundled up the scent was really quite strong.
And then I spent all the next day in bed with a crushing headache - sinus induced I might add, and the fact that I forgot to take my anti-histamine. What I really need is a mask. You quite often see people wearing masks during olive blossom time, which is just around the corner. Ah well, even the garden of Eden had a snake.
