Lavender wands

Frances at Faire Garden has a wonderful tutorial posted for making lavender wands. Click on over there for an easy how-to for something aromatic for your guest rooms, for hostess gifts, or to keep the kids busy for a few hours.

whatever—“The Oak Park Hates Veggie” lady who faced jail time for growing her vegetables in her front yard? And won? Yeah, she’s moving to Seattle.

Excellent article about the wands. Too bad I trimmed and tossed lavender yesterday. Garbage day today, and too late to grab em back. Here in Garden Grove, they grow beautifully and lush. I have mostly Munsted, very successful with them. So there will be more opportunities. I do have some dried lav, not in wands, in the house and they smell good after 5 years.

The Oak Park lady… is she going to feel adrift in Seattle, where everyone has vegetable gardens in their front yard?

Thank you so much for posting this article!  I made one of these wands YEARS ago, but forgot how to do it.  It’s all coming back now… <grin>  Thanks again.
