Lavender bonnet flower in sunlight

“It always seems to me as if the lavender was a little woman in a green dress, with a lavender bonnet and a white kerchief. She’s one of those strong, sweet, wholesome people, who always rest you, and her sweetness lingers long after she goes away.” ~ Myrtle Reed

I love this description not just because I think it conjurers up such a strong image but because it contains the word bonnet. Why don’t we use that word more? It has such a lovely ring to it. Go on, say it out loud, Bonnet. It feels nice to say and I can’t help but think of pretty things and simple times when I hear it. It is definitely a word that should not be lost into the voids of the past.
