Lavender

Some years ago, I was visiting St Andrews in Scotland. It is one of the loveliest towns for me till now. We were walking with my daughter at the seashore, talking and enjoying each other. We were tasting scones and taking multum photos when we noticed a small shop with different things, mostly vintage. And that’s where we found this wonderful calendar, “The Floral Birthday Book”: Flowers and their Emblems, with Appropriate selections from the poets with 368 illustrations engraved and printed in colours by Edmund Evans. I am getting ready to write a separate post about this book and show you examples of flowers and poetry, but for now, I’d like to present to you my yesterday crocheting – thin sprigs of lavender.
