Gone Gathering Lavender

It's harvest time on my lavender farm.
Harvesting is cutting off the lavender stems that have bloomed.
When you harvest, depends on how you want to use your lavender. If you want the buds to stay on the stem cut early when 1/4 of the stem has bloomed. If you want buds, then cut later when you see more of the stem in bloom, after drying, the buds will release easier.
Pruning should be done in the Fall or Spring.

Now, help me name this picture. Thanks!

Photos I've Taken on My Farm

I stayed up late one night editing some of the pictures I have taken on my farm.
I'm certainly not a photographer and feel funny using the word editing.
I was very pleased though with the outcome and happy that 
I have captured some special moments here on the farm. 
 Now the question is
Would you like them as cards or prints?
Tell me which ones you like and give me suggestions on how to use them.
