Preserving Lavender

I grow a lot of lavender in my garden.  I can't resist it.  The way it smells when you walk by and happen to brush up against it.  The way it brings the bees to the garden.  The wonderful things you can do with it.  And did I mention it smells divine!  I was noticing the other day that the flowers were just at their peak and so I decided to preserve some of them to add to little gifts or stick in a vase or lay on a table. So I gathered them into little bunches and hung them upside down to dry.  I could hardly get them away from the bees they love them so!

It's as easy as 1, 2, 3:
1.  Gather Lavender in small little bunches.
2.  Secure with a twist tie.
3.  Hang them upside down to dry or use as is.

Enjoy your lavender inside and out!
