Serendipity Experience 71 : Delight in a splash of Lavender.

9:48 PM

The Jacaranda's are in full bloom and Sydney is awash with colour! Everywhere you turn splashes of purple and lavender abound. 

From my window little patches of Lavender are everywhere!

In keeping with the colour scheme  I thought it was only appropriate that I add my own interior splashes of lavender to my home, unfortunately the intense heat over the past few days has meant that not many flowers can endure the heat!!

I am joining up with these sites Sorted with Style "Feathered Nest Friday" , The Charm of Home, My Romantic Home , Friday's unfolded and Common Ground They have so many inspirational ideas, pop by and take a look!
