Lavender and a love of the garden

Last year I posted some glimpses of my garden.
My husband made us a long planter which we grew runner beans in last year, and  this year I have planted lavender in it.
I love looking at it from out of my kitchen window and seeing the bees doing their thing. I walk past it most days and just brush it with my hand and then inhale its beautiful aroma. I picked some yesterday and put it in a little vase.
We spent a night in the Lake District last week, and the hotel where we stayed had the most beautiful vegetable garden.
I really feel like we are coming to the end of Summer now, and the trees are already beginning to turn.
I love Autumn, but it seems to have come round so soon!
Have a lovely weekend x
