our Lavender is raging since I was away and the rains have prevented me from picking any upon our return…

  2. It’s wonderful to have you back home, dear friend, although that’s a selfish feeling as I’m sure you are missing your travels! Your pictures (and Mr.M’s) are fabulous and it’s been wonderful to travel vicariously with you.
    My heart be still…lavender in abundance and a most beautiful crest with bees!! Thank you for sharing, sweet Patty, and please send some of that rain our way ~ our boiling desert floor desperately needs it! xoxo Karen

  4. Thank you so much dear Susi, Karen and Sophia! I wish that the rain would go to the fire ridden areas…such a tragedy for the awful loss of so many brave firefighters!

  8. Hurray, you are back! You have been missed! I can’t wait to see more of your travel pictures…you are such a tease with the beauties you posted today. Your mandala is wonderful – the face, the plate, the spider-wort, the lavender, the lily (I think), the foliage!

  20. So good to see you back. I’m watching in anticipation of all the wonderful sights I’m sure you’ll share in the next month or so on your blog.

    Not sure why, but all my lavender died. Both what I had from last year AND what I bought this year. I’m so disappointed, since I never really got to make any of those wands you are so famous for.

    Again, welcome home.
