Here's a sketch of the different varieties of lavender in my garden.  The three on the left are compact growing and have nearly finished their flowering but the one on the right is just getting going with 2 foot long spikes laden with fragrant flowers.  I picked 6 bunches this morning but left plenty more for the bees who were very busy collecting nectar and probably a bit annoyed to see some of their food disappear!  I'm looking forward to making lavender bags with my very own dried flowers in a few week's time.
