Pinterest LOVES Lavender...Again

Have you created your Pinterest account yet? I do hope so...its so very addictive! Since our lavender field has bloomed and gone this year (MAN do we miss that sea of purple waving in the breeze), we have been feasting our eyes on lavender destinations around the world via Pinterest...make sure to click the picture captions to be taken directly to our pin in Pinterest.
Bridestowe Lavender Estate Field
We just learned that the Bridestowe Lavender Estate (pictured above) has about 109 acres dedicated to cultivation of premium, perfume grade lavender (Lavandula angustifolia). Therefore, they are one of the largest, if not the largest, plantation of its type in the world. WOW!

How about something a little more A-MAZING (pun definitely intended)? Well, this gorgeous picture from Germany fits the bill...

Lavender Labyrinth in Kastellaun, Germany
Imagine wandering in that heavenly scented labyrinth for a while...the air hanging heavy with the fragrance of lavender as your clothes brush up against the bushes while you make your way toward the center of the maze.

Finally, if that's not enough to change your mood, imagine having a home in Provence, France...

Lavender field in Sault, Provence in France
Being able to visit  the most perfect fields of lavender growing in mounded rows under a brilliant blue summer sky. Is there anything more superb??

I'm so relaxed right now that I think I actually might need a quick nap...please show yourself out.
