Harvesting -

It's time for the annual joint harvesting of the golden yarrow and the lavender -

-Baskets of the stuff is cut and trimmed and hung on the wall - for future tea, sachets, shortbread, tub-teas, etc... This is the biggest harvest of the season, with a smaller one or two later on. For several days the house smells of lavender (much to my kid's dismay).

Still picking strawberries and loads of borage and chamomile.

And today - the first bowl of raspberries of the season.

Those raspberries look delicious!
I've never seen a golden yarrow plant before. That looks interesting.
