  •  i just started loving lavender so much. (6+ / 0-)

    just this past year.
    i have lavender soap and body lotion i bought from the farmers today.
    i bought lavender body mist last week.
    i have lavender ironing spray.

    i would love to burn lavender candles, but threw my 30 yankee candles out. you know why.

    i wonder if i love it now because without me knowing, it calms my soul?
    john likes it too. a lot.

    Sara - I want one.

    •  Lavendar plants available at your garden store (7+ / 0-)

      or farmer's market. Usually in the 'herb' dept.

      We have one in the yard, in a warm spot so it comes back every year. Brush against it and you smell good for the whole day.

      You can also make your own sachets.

          •  i have more than ever this year. (8+ / 0-)

            i have some in the green house that i could even pull out.
            john got kinda annoyed this year.
            first time ever.
            he said my addiction to flowers and lantana was causing him stress.
            he meant it.

              •  it's 'actually the limited time we now have (7+ / 0-)

                i'll tell you . when he said it. i crawled under the willow tree and cried a few tears. because he meant it.  

                we ran out of room for everything. and the sicker my mom got? the more pain she was in? the more helpless i became. and  for some reason - i bought more and more.
                than i ever did. mom cries? more lantana. mom in more pain? more lantana. mom goes to hospital? then i bought three trees.

                i took so much time off from work to plant. and got so little done.

                i wrote 2013 off as not the best year.
                 when i accept that, i feel better.

                •  So sorry you're having a hard year (6+ / 0-)

                  But planting green things to cope with your mother's illness is not the most unhealthy thing you could be doing, not by a long shot.

                  My lavender plant grows very happily in benign neglect with two coleus (coleuses?) which are not sun-lovers. There are many varieties of lavender...all of which smell good, put out little purple flowers and need varying amounts of sun, water and attention.

                •  I'm so sorry, Christin. (6+ / 0-)

                  Ann and I had a time like this -- first our Dad's illness.  And only months after he passed away, we discovered Mother had the same kind of cancer.  It was a privilege to be there for them -- but it did take a toll on us.  It stretches the heart, caregiving -- sometimes it seems past endurance.

                  That's why we are so committed to doing community quilts for caregivers.  Caregivers need to know they have people who care about them, too.

                  •  we all our time, right sara? i know that. (6+ / 0-)

                    heard about it for years. but thought i would be stronger than this. my mom is my hero and my angel and i revere her to no end...so that made this harder on me than i thought.  i am terrified of losing her but am terrified of this pain she is in. i did not know arthrtis could make life hell. and my dad's blood pressure keeps hitting 220!!!

                    and he's still here!

                    ack.

                    my god, both your mom and dad? so close? same cancer?

                    It stretches the heart, caregiving -- sometimes it seems past endurance.

                    i am so sorry too Sara...as i argue and bicker with people in another diary..this drives home. what the hell is wrong with me. Kishik told me she gets uplifting vibes and inspiration and goodess from diaries like this. from people like you. why did i not listen? i get so angry over there. my eyes well up with tears over here, reading your comment, but not the bad kind.

                    the one thing that made me laugh so much? if i ever asked for a quilt? about 10 people would probably give you 100 bucks each to post "you should be banned. "

                    lol. yup .still laughing.

                  I neglected my back garden for years and years because I had to take care of my Mom... And then when she died, it was hard to get anything done.

                  But your garden will be there for you when you need it.  It will wait.  Even if you neglect it this year.

                   And your S/O always understands what keeps you grounded and calm... It's why he built you the greenhouse. :-)
