Mmm I Love the smell of......

 lavender. So I have loads of it in my garden. It makes me think of when I lived in London when I qualified as a Midwife. I worked in St Thomas Hospital and when going to the nearest Tube (Waterloo) we used to cut through the Shell Buildings garden which had lavender borders. It always made me smile that I was bang in the middle of London and was smelling lavender. 
 I thought I would make this wee gift from My Mum who is going into Hospital this week for a minor op. Just thought it was slightly different from the norm of a card.
