Fields of Dreams

By Patricia • Family Life • 11 Jul 2013

 

This past weekend we went to our very first Lavender Festival. Ernest and I have always wanted to visit Provence and see the beautiful fields of fragrant purple flowers. Unfortunately that trip is not in the cards for us this year, but there was an awesome lavender festival very close to our home that we could visit.

On the way there we made a pit-stop for some road trip snacks and as we were paying at the cash register, Sofia told the cashier “this is my brother and he’s not so well behaved!” No secrets from this child of ours ;) IMG_4028

The fields were beautiful and full of blooming purple flowers.

There were many small businesses selling natural, lavender products to support the local communities.

I took this opportunity to reinforce the appreciation of nature and gentleness in my energetic and somewhat aggressive little toddler.

A boy should learn to appreciate flowers from a young age ;)

My nature loving girl had no problems making friends with a little “pollen jock” who was collecting nectar from the flowers.

We enjoyed some delicious lavender water and watched the storm forming in the sky above us.

Once they dry I will definitely be trying my hand at some culinary lavender recipes to post!
