Lavender


Lavender

It has been warmer these past few days, so I’m hoping Spring will soon be sprung! Lavender and fragrant flowers bobbing in the breeze, honey bees flitting about, and a pile of cushions on the back deck while I cozen up to a good read.

The lavender is still out right now, though it’s leggy and most of the flowers are closed up. I was spending a spare moment on the front porch, blowing bubbles and watching as they burst on the woody stems. I blew them so they got tumbled about by the wind, clapping when they blew three feet away and cheering when they went six feet on without popping. I’m sure any passing neighbors would have wondered where the insane girl they were hearing was hiding, but I was thankfully hidden by some dormant shrubs out front. It was only a moment in my busy day, but it was still something special. It give me the strength to go on and face the pile of homework and dreadfully dull textbooks awaiting me inside with a glimmer of a grin.

*Edit: This looks so pretty, doesn’t it? It’s clear in the front and kind of faded in the background. Remember, I did this without Photoshop, or any smartphone apps.

  1. Oops! The ether may have eaten my comment. Anyway, I love lavender! And can’t wait to see it appear. We’re still a few weeks away — but soon, soon. ;-)

  2. Oh how, I miss seeing trees ( last time i saw them was july of last year) A tree is what we dont, never had, nor ever will have here in Nuussuaq…yet just like you im looking forward to spring too and that comes may be in May or June when all the snow is gone…

    1. Aww, I’m sorry it takes so long for you! I love that I live in a place where the weather is always changing, I don’t think I could handle too much Winter or even a place with too much Summer or Spring like rains all the time. Maybe you could grow pots of plants indoors, or at least one? And I do like trees a lot too, maybe you could sculpt one of snow :)
