Monday Monday

“Monday, Monday. . . so good to me.”  At least that’s what the Mama and the Papas sang in the 60’s.  It’s our wish for you, that this Monday will be good to you.  Check out these images of lavender fields in Provence, France and consider planting your own lavender field (or bed. . .) to soothe future Mondays.

Planted in Provence since the Middle Ages, lavender is an herb used for everything from a sleep aid to cooking.  Lavender oil has been called “a medicine cabinet in a bottle”, the perfect compound for balancing the body (see the Joys of Lavender at ).

But besides its myriad uses, lavender defends its existence  by being simply beautiful and smelling like a bit of heaven.  Strick a sprig in a bottle and set it on your table tonight – make Monday just as good as or better than all of the rest of the week.

And if you can’t find a live sprig, set your table with gorgeous French linen tablecloths and napkins.  Let lavender on your tabletop soothe your Monday right into Tuesday. . .
