Prettying up the house for free...

Tonight I wandered up the street with a pair of scissors to procure some free flowers to pretty up the kitchen. One block up from us there's a huge lavender hedge that has spilled over a fence and now takes up most of the footpath. Add to it from olive branches from the front yard and voila, a gorgeous smelling splash of colour. 
I'm planning to experiment a bit with lavender this summer, maybe adding it to some shortbread, drying it, making soap... any ideas are very welcome :-)
