Lavender and Mint

I was doing some weedin' the other day, it had rained earlier so the evening was marvelous and I decided to work in the garden a little.... or a lot

My lavender was blooming....

The mint smelled fantastic.....

So I thought why not combine both and make a little bouquet....

Which I brought inside the house....

My kitchen smelled fresh and clean, loved it.

French word of today:
Mint = Menthe (mahnt)



  1. What a beautiful combination! I love both!!

  2. mint & lavender, my two favorite scents!

  3. What I would give to be able to grow lavender! It is just too hot and humid down here. Your bouquet is lovely!

  4. your lavander shots are stunning! love the color!

  5. I can almost smell it now! I adore lavender, and I just picked a bouquet of my Spanish lavender today. I never would have thought of combining it with mint, thanks for the great idea!

  6. Thanks for linking up to Cottage Flora Thursday's Garden Party! my neighbors mint smells like mojito's & it grows from under his've given me an idea! xoxo, Tracie

  7. Love your lavender and mint combination. I bet the scent was wonderful!

  8. Hmmmm, I can almost smell it all the way over here :-) What a fresh combination.

    Hugs and Kisses,

  9. Lovely combo! I have a flower bed planted with mint, roses, and lavender--the smell is heavenly! I just have to keep an eye on the mint and pray it dosen't kill off the lavendar! I think the roses can hold their own!

    Now Following!!!
