Place the lavender into a bowl, and pour boiling water over it. Allow to steep for about 10 minutes, then sieve out the lavender and discard. Mix the sugar into the hot lavender water until dissolved, then pour into a 2 litre pitcher with the ice.
Squeeze the juice from the lemons into the pitcher, getting as much juice as you can. Top off the pitcher with cold water, and stir. Taste, and adjust lemon juice or sugar if desired. Pour into tall glasses, sit in the garden with a good book, and relax!
