I was picking lavender today! Felt fantastic - cloud of lavender aroma, butterflies, a bunch of flowers in my hands and warm sun in the breeze... Relaxing afternoon moment and a perfect aroma for the evening at home. It rests on a little table topper and I think the cotton will take some of the aroma while the bunch dries.
I have never researched about this but particular white butterfly is the one that is found around lavender plants most often here. Sometimes the butterflies are almost as many as the buds...
Two were playing around this single plant above and see how many around these ones last year:
Looking forward to taking pictures with the lavender tomorrow.
