A Summer of Lavender

Hello friends, how are you? 

I've started thinking about autumn already! 

Most likely it's because fall is my favorite time of year, 

which is why I thought I'd better get in gear and share my summertime lavender 

photos with you before I get caught up in those pretty autumn colors! :-) 





I've been dying to go to the lavender farms since we lived here, and 

we finally made it this summer. 




It was everything I expected it to be and more. 







As soon as you got out of your car,  you could smell the lavender, 

it's amazing! 







This little girl was so cute carrying her freshly picked lavender bouquet 

in one hand and her stuffed kangaroo in the other arm. 

I couldn't resist a shot as she strolled through the fields. 




Bees happily buzzing around




The field workers kept busy picking bunches for those that 

didn't want to pick their own. 




 This house is on the property of the lavender farm. 

I think I could see myself living there, sitting 

on that front porch sipping iced tea and watching the birds. 







This little house is the gift shop, 

where I purchased some lavender buds for sachets I'm making...

(stay tuned. :-) 



and this hat...








So, there's my summer of lavender. 



I hope your summer is going well, and I thank you for 

visiting here and leaving a comment or simply just 

taking a peek at my photos. 


Happy weekend!
