This year I won't be in Provence, but I am very lucky to get my lavender fix right outside my front door. See the previous blog post, with all the bees in lavender? They greet me each morning.
These photos were taken on a mini-road trip with my friend Monica a few weekends ago. There is a little farm in Pennsylvania, not far from Gettysburg, which has an annual Lavender Festival. They grow a wide variety of lavender and one particularly vivid and fragrant kind is called Hidcote. Most of these photos are of Hidcote Lavender. Enjoy.
