Making Umbrellas

7"X5" Oil on board

I have mentioned before I think that lavender grows well in my sandy garden. My grandmother had a huge lavender bush by her front gate. Every year she would make these "lavender umbrellas" and when I was small I would help her gather the lavender spears and thread them through with satin ribbon. They are quite easy to make, maybe I will post a step-by-step on my other blog sometime.
