Bee Still.......

Some images I captured of buzzing bees on my lavender. My lavender actually looks good! It came back and is thriving! Some of the plants have parts that are dead though and I'm not sure what to do about it. Do I cut the bad part out? I'm so afraid the whole plant will actually die. I know I need to cut the stalks back after they have bloomed but if you know what to do about the bad dead let me know. My new puppy Stanley just loves going to these plants and watching all of the bees on it! Oh what fun! Have a fabulous weekend!


  1. Hi Tracy! So nice to see at the farm this morning!! how is stanley? I'm sure a bundle of love!!!!

    i wore your jewelry the other day and got quite a great comment on them!! I love them still :)

  2. I L.O.V.E. these earrings you made for me...I wore them to an event tonight, and got so many compliments!! send me some of your business cards when you get a chance okay??

    you do a really good job Tracy...really good!

  3. Let me know if you figure out what to do with your lavender. I planted my first bunch this weekend and am not sure what I'm doing yet, but I love it! Glad to hear yours is growing well!

  4. Hi Tracy! Your lavender looks so beautiful! I love lavender and left my plants at my other home when I moved and need to get some for here. Yes, remove those dead branches. I always did that by hand and just would pull or break off any of the dead leaves and stems. Remove all of the dead. It helps to keep down on fungus growing on the plant and also helps to let air circulate thru it. Humidity here is awful and lavender does not like humidity. Did you know that you can propogate lavender very easily and have lots more plants? They are easily propogated with stem cuttings. I am happy to tell you how to do it if you are interested let me know.
