just like velvet


































have you ever noticed some flower petals feel just like soft velvet? these little buds on this lavender plant felt a bit like velvet to me as well, which was convenient since I happened to be looking for something to photograph pertaining to the letter V.
please visit the abc wednesday meme if you'd like to learn more about the letter V.

Velvet! That was a good word for 'V'. I love the velvety feeling of the little soft balls or buds on Sage and collected a few to take back with me last time we were in the desert -- only to find I'm allergic to them and had a bout of asthma. How about kitten's ears too.

Oh yes - and the lovely scent the petals leave behind - one of my favourite plants in the garden.

Your shot of the lavender plant is so beautiful. (And the petals are violet colored, another v word.)

How funny - I just walked past some of these last week and touched them and commented how they felt like velvet. You're right on the mark!

Halcyon said...

I have never touched a piece of lavender. It looks velvety.

Janie said...

It does look like it would feel velvety soft. That's an imaginative V!
