One (although there really are SO many) of my favorite things about summer is lavender.
We have some of the best lavender farms where I live. The lavender season is short so I normally buy several bunches a week to make lavender wands. To make the wands, the lavender has to be freshly cut so the stems can bend without splintering.
My front porch smells so good from the bits of lavender I still have in the vase and the little buds all over the ground. Here are a few wands I made from this week's bunch of lavender.
Does anyone else make lavender wands?
What is something special you do this time of year?
Today's Shout Out is not actually for a blog but for a Blog Talk Radio station called Art and Soul Radio hosted by Leslie Riley.
I found this station from an interview with Leslie Riley I read. On her show, Leslie interviews artists including Kelly Rae Roberts, LK Ludwig, Pam Carriker, Diana Trout and many more! . You can listen to her broadcasts live and submit questions or listen to past broadcasts.
Today's interview will be with Dana Reynolds who is an artist/writer and the creator of Sacred Life-Arts.
One more thing, I need help coming up with a "title" for the Shout Outs I have been doing at the end of my posts and if you like them.
What do you think?
I really appreciate your input and suggestions.
Hope you are having a great start to your week!
