L is for Lavender, which we Like a Lot

Hello, Bertie here again.

I Love Lavender.  Others Like it a Lot. There’s Little more to say.  Although Mummy says I should be more Loquacious. Wax Lyrical.

See you next time 🙂

L for Lavender #AtoZChallenge


Hi, Kevin here.  We’re into the second week of the A to Z Challenge, and in case you’re just visiting, I’m a six year old ginger and white guinea pig.  This blog was started by Fred and George, Mummy’s very first guinea pigs.  She writes books about them too.

Our A to Z Challenge theme is “Our Favourite Things”

Sometimes she uses pieces of lavender in things, and gives us a little with our breakfast, or as a treat.  She sometimes decorates summer birthday cakes with it, too.
