Bev’s Colourful Friday - Lavendar

My friend, Bev at Kainga Happenings is hosting Colourful Friday this week, so I thought I would join her just this once.
 
So, literally, here is my lavendar when it’s fresh:

and when it’s past it’s best..  Same camera, different angle, maybe different time of day but what different colours!

I sometimes think things are pink or blue rather than lavendar but I’m sure there is a lavendar colour in here somewhere:
in a pot
or in this one?

My blue hydrangea (a gift from Bev’s sister, Chris) looks lavendar when it first blooms:
Hydrangeas

I don’t know what these are.  They are in a garden not far from where I live:

These are in the same garden:

I’m not a crafty person like Bev but I did manage to find some lavendar tones in this hand knitted winter scarf.

  3. Oh how I love that lavender. We have none in Ky. except that planted in home gardens. In Texas, where my son lives, it is everywhere, thanks to Lady Byrd. Beautiful post.

  5. Pretty flowers. I want to plant Hydrangeas in my garden but we would have to get rid of a few bushes first.
