Happy Monday you guys! My garden is currently overflowing with this gorgeous (and gorgeously-scented) lavender, and I’m so excited I just had to share. Growing my own lavender has always been a little dream of mine, and all summer ours has been teasing us by growing taller and taller…and then finally bursting into bloom! It actually inspired today’s Monochromatic Monday, which I’ll share in just a bit, so be sure to stop back by. Hope you’re all having a lovely and energetic start to the new week! xo

    There’s nothing better than having a batch of lavender in your garden. I love the smell when I’m sitting outside on a warm summer evening. πŸ™‚

    I totally love lavender!
    I usually put it b/w the clothes, it smells so good.

    Lavender is my favourite, so relaxing! We’ve got some in our garden, but it isn’t that strong smelling so I don’t think it’s the same fragrant variety as yours!

    Hello Camille!! I love your blog, it is amazingly beautiful! The lavender perfume the gardens … when it rains is a delicious perfume in the air … A big kiss from Portugal!

    I love lavender. Apparently it helps you fall asleep too, so that’s good. πŸ™‚ Yours looks beautiful.

    How beautiful! I purchased a French/English hybrid of lavender that is perfect for a more contained apartment patio and it is just starting to show it’s little lavender blooms. It’s not as fragrant as the Croatian or French variety, but I love it, and will run my fingers over it on my way to work for a quick shot of relaxation before my day takes over. I’m sure it’s just what you need in these busy months leading up to baby girl.
