Welcome to Colourful Friday. This weeks colour is Lavender. I hope it wasn't to hard to find.

|Salvia "Christine Yeo"|
Salvia's come in many colours and are real survivors in the garden. This one is one of my favourites.

(The Election, 1798)
Oh, they are such savages! I'm sure if I had not put lavender on my pocket handkerchief, like Mama, I should have fainted away.
(Practical Magic )
There's a few things I've learned in life: always throw salt over your left shoulder, keep rosemary by your garden gate, plant lavender for good luck, and fall in love whenever you can.
(A Beggar on Horseback, 1798)
My dear, have some lavender, or you'd best have a thimble full of wine, your spirits are quite down, my sweeting.
"lavender, sweet lavender;
come and buy my lavender,
hide it in your trousseau, lady fair.
Let its flovely fragrance flow
Over your from head to toe,
lightening on your eyes, your cheek, your hair."
Cumberkand Clark Flower Song Book 1929
