The Lavender Collection

Show and Tell Monday with Make Mine Pink

The Lavender Collection

A timeless classic, lavender has been much maligned as being old fashioned but I think due for a big revival, with memories of summer and the sound of bees, what could be more perfect. This poem by Nancy Ellen Crossland sums up a true picture of Lavender


The sun winks between the valley's horizon
Ending its day;
Now twilight replaces golden skies
With its lavender array,

Before purple veils cover the ending day
With its lingering stay,
Lavender whispers in valleys of grey;
Nature's paintbrush with each stroke
A glorious scene
It will evoke,

To linger within this lavender valley;
To inhale the scents of evening,
I will release every thought of the day
Oh yes,
I would gladly stay!
