the garden is at its peak right now. one of my favourite plants is the lavender. the sharp clarity of its colour. the intense fragrance. i'm picking it now to dry. i include a sachet of lavender with every purchase of island sweet yarn from my etsy shop. and speaking of my shop - it's pretty bare right now. a few shawls and scarflettes. but all my yarn is going into orders and next week i'll be spinning yarn to take up to woody point for the writers festival. but late august i'll start loading it up with yarn again. just in time for autumn knitting.
