Well, all my lavender plants are harvested & I am finishing up the pruning.... it's kind of sad to see my sweet lavender plants all pruned back....no purple flowers, no bees, no sweet scent as I walk my little lavender field.
I left a few spikes on some of the plants just for the occasional late bee hanging around for one last sweet buzz through the lavender.
I only found one praying mantis today in the lavender so I guess the rest have moved on or?
On the plus side, next year I'll get to enjoy another season of lavender dreams.
But for now, 'Tata' little bees, butterflies, lady bugs, praying mantis, salamanders and mice....yes I said mice...they like to come out from the field next door and play 'hide-n-seek' around the rock boarder of my lavender field.
