Lavendar and Pretty Girls in a postcard

This is the best season I had for my lavender plants probably because we had more than usual rain in central California.  This is the end of the season but the plants still have their blooms.  Even when drying on the plant itself the aroma is wonderful.  I cannot help but pick a stalk everytime I go by the plant.   So this evening I got a handful of flowers, grabbed my camera and a pretty postcard and snapped this photo.  Aren't digital cameras wonderful.  One thing I like about the summer is the warm evenings outside and I am going to take a walk tonight.
A walk up our driveway

Pine Trees we planted.....they were 4 inches tall many years ago.

Hope everyone is having a nice weekend.  Can't believe tomorrow August is here.

Wow Judy..Isn't it amazing how fast the trees grow. I bought my SIL an apple tree for her baby Shower a little over 5 years ago..I called it a living gift. I would love to see it now..maybe someday soon after we get moved. I didn't have any luck with my Lavender and didn't know you liked it. I made some Lavender soap and maybe some day I will send you some. Love the pictures you posted. Always enjoy reading your blog. I am going to do a new post in mine later today :)

The pines really do grow fast and my lavender is not great this year. It has been way to hot and I need to prune them back!

I do love lavender though and your post card girl is beautiful.
Smiles, Cyndi
