Lovely Lavender

The lavender is blooming at last!


Last spring we planted lots of lavender beside the front walkway (the picture above shows one of eight bushes). They are all thriving and, as you can see, now full of purple buds. My question is ... now what do I do? I would very much like to harvest the lavender (to dry?) for crafts and such. But I have no idea how to do this. If you have any advice on harvesting lavender (and maybe what you do with it after), please share! :)
