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!
