Mikrokosmos Foto Challenge July Week 3 “Drink”

the challenge this week at MiFoC is “Getränk/Drink”…

I am sharing some Lavender Honey Lemonade that I made using fresh lavender from our garden with local raw honey and organic lemons…

Lavender Lemonade ingredients

a recipe from Mother Earth News here inspired me to get busy…

there is even a nice video link here of the largest lavender event in North America which happens to be this weekend…if only it weren’t on the other side of the U.S. 3000 miles/4828 Kilometers away…

Refreshing Lavender Honey Lemonade

simple ingredients that made the house smell wonderful…

it was delicious

I used some of my borage blossom ice cubes but I think I will enjoy the next glass of lavender tea served cold without ice…

  13. Oh something new for me, but it sounds good your lavender lemonade. Sometimes I make tea of rose and lavender blossoms or use lavender for cooking a sauce. Your photos are so nice again. It makes desire to try it myself.
    Good night.

  14. This looks gorgeous. I would have loved to have had one in front of me on this hot and humid day.

  15. How I wish I could have lavender in the house – it’s so pretty, but alas, I’m allergic.

  16. Hhm, a very delicous drink and I can smell the lavender.
    I am so thrilled about your fotos!
    …and I see the little light blue flowers, we call “Borretsch”, this grew in my garden long time ago. Love the Blue.
    Have a nice weekend!

  17. I had NO idea you could make tea out of lavender. I was nearly blown over when I read that. Of course, I love the photos, but I was especially impressed with the tea you can make from this beautiful plant. Sadly, I can’t seem to get mine to grow for more than a couple of weeks!

  18. This must be delicious!! I used lavender as herb tea but never thought to mix it with lemon, very tempting!Your photos are always so beautiful !Thanks for sharing ! Have a beautiful week.

  19. Yummi ;o) Great photos!
