Color Your World: 120 Days of Crayola; Lavender (I Can’t Help It) Again

The Lavender of Le Crestet, Provence, France

The Lavender of Le Crestet, Provence, France

You can never get enough Lavender I say! Here is another photo of Lavender, this time the real thing taken in a village in Le Crestet, France!  High on a hilltop the bees were swarming this magnificent plant. You could hear the buzzing long before reaching it! What is more relaxing than the fragrance of Lavender?

Lavender 1 was part of Crayola assortment from 1949 to 1958.

Lavender 2 has been produced since 1958.  It is also known as Plum Purple in the second “So Big” set,  and as both Saturn’s Ring and Starfish Lavender in the “Discovery” series. More great colors from Crayola!

This post is just one of many in the Color Your World: 120 Days of Crayola Challenge! Enjoy!

    That is a lovely photo of lavender. It is a plant I have had to grow to like. I have too many associations of dried lavender being used in drawers of clothing. As a child I never liked the smell and even today i am still not keen. However I am now beginning to like the plant and have even bought three new ones for a difficult border around my house.

    Ah, lavender! Our garden is full of it an the smell is an eternal delight in the summer. And so are the colours! The lavender’s smell can only be topped by the one of the fragrant snowball (Viburnum farreri) and roses of course.

      I love lavender it it is almost too hot to grow it here you have to really baby it! I love the snowball viburnum too. Is your garden as organized as your music or is it wild looking?
