French Lavender

French Lavender (Lavandula stoechas and augustifolia)

I bought this from a market stall for 2 pounds - it just flowers and flowers!

Your photos are superb, my camera isn't good enough to take pictures like yours, they look very professional.

Thank you Holly - we began to try close-ups of blooms inspired by Joey! Our camera is a bit out of date, but does still seem to do the job! We now have a file in the PC called 'Blooms' and it has over a 100 close-ups in it...I had the job of naming them all and it's quite hard to recognise some :-O...I certainly won't be putting them all on this site, it would probably blow up under the strain :-)

A lovely photo with super light. Also you asked about the best time to prune Sambucus nigra. We pruned it after the first year to presuade it to take on an architectural shape, and this was done late September when the leaves had fallen.It gives a lovely contrast to the Acer palmatum standing very close to it.With best wishes and happy gardening.Grenville and Alan.
