Okay, now here’s exactly why it so ticks me off that lavender plants are just barely hardy in my zone 4 (windy) garden — a pretty wreath of lavender blossoms, accented with one tiny perfect rosebud in a bow of raffia.

This is one of the bountiful variety of lavender wreath styles at Hood River Lavender, Oregon — certified organic, too!

If you can make an evergreen wreath, and a grapevine wreath, and a wreath of dried autumn leaves… this would be totally do-able! The trick, of course, is to have an ample supply of lavender to make enough bunches for an entire wreath…

So I offer up this floral inspiration for you lucky crafting gardeners in a milder climate, who can grow beautiful thick lush lavender plants ’til the flowers come out of your ears… or who live within an easy jaunt of Hood River’s lavender U-Pick!
