Lovely Lavender Kate. Mine have just finished so I cut them back yesterday and my dustbin smells lovely. Not seen many bees over the last couple of days and there are more wasps about.

Thank you, Linda. A couple of mine are really lingering, plus, I did trim others and they produced a few new flowers! Yay!
I’ll bet your bin smells pretty good! When I trimmed a lot of rosemary a while back, the smell in the bin was a most welcomed alternative! 😁

Nice lighting effect there. It really highlights the lavender.
