Lavender Sugar
Photo by Amy LV

It's summertime! Time for fireflies, time for milkshakes, time for finding snakes in the garden!

It is also time for me to post less frequently here at The Poem Farm.  

Instead, I will be scribbling in my notebook, making lavender sugar (see above), picking strawberries, making cherry jam, and playing outside.  I also plan to read more books and tidy up the blog here a bit, so you may notice a few changes as the summer months pass.  I look forward to seeing you on Fridays, and wish you delightful summer days!  Here are a few places you  might like to visit:

Learn to make lavender sugar Vintage Folly.  (I used 1 cup sugar to 1 Tbsp flower buds and have since ground them together in my blender.)

  1. Yes! Take some time off! It's summer and 'the livin' is easy' (at least it's supposed to be)!
