I got myself three of them, thinking the amount would be just fine to get crafty before I'd head home next day.
Soon after I brought them home, I put them in a vase to keep them fresh, took out my stash of satin ribbons and started braiding the tiny stems into colourful fagots.
I started using up long ribbons one by one, but unlike them the amount of lavender in front of me didn't seem to change. In fact, I had the feeling there was more and more of it.Even though I started by mid afternoon, and I only paused for minor physiological needs, I was far from finishing my project in the evening. And the amount of lavender still didn't seem to have changed in my favour! After some more braiding, evening became night and by midnight, I was more than happy to have bought "only" three bouquets of lavender.
On the other hand, I was still stubborn enough to keep braiding because there's no way one would throw lavender away, right?
Slowly, night became morning and it was only one hour before I was due to leave for my train that I finished my last lavender fagot.
Needless to say I was pretty much useless next day, trying to catch some sleep on the train and hiding underneath my blanket as soon as I got home. Nevertheless, the scent of lavender as well as the colourful fagots were absolutely worth it.
