Lavender's blue, dilly dilly
When I am King dilly dilly
You shall be Queen
17th Century English Folk Song
I guess it is kind of like the "Last Rose of Summer". My lavender plants are just about kaput. Such a sweet delicate bit of color. A pleasing scent, known thru the ages to help alleviate headaches, and sleeplessness. The crushed flowers release an aromatic oil.
Soon we will be thinking about snow .....
