Spring is on its way, but in your part of the world, it might not quite be there yet. However, Cindy Knoke’s Holler has sprung! Please enjoy these lovely blooms courtesy of Cindy’s photographic talents. 🙂
It may be snow white up here in NWT, but for that reason, I think it’s time for a Friday flower.
The photo above, taken a couple of years ago, is of a bunch from one of my lavender pots. Lavender is said to bring luck. In ancient times, it was burned in bonfires to ward off evil or to entice good fortune.
Despite its reputation as an “old lady” flower, I have always loved it for its fragrance and pretty purple flowers. Dried, it can last a long time; I like to keep it in my closet to repel moths, and outside, it repels mosquitoes.
And, as if that’s not enough, lavender scent will help you to sleep, and more deeply, as well.
It’s certainly one of nature’s beautiful presents. Do you grow lavender?

Oh … hello. Where did you come from? Well, it seems that a magic pumpkin has joined my Friday Flower post. Umm, not sure how I feel about that. I suppose it can stay as long as nothing else creepy happens.
Dear Pumpkin Being: do not grow arms, legs, fangs, or a mouth. If you do, I will get my blender and turn you into mush. Got it?
