Dreaming of Lavender Fields

Can you believe it’s snowing right now? (In April?!) This cold weather we’ve been having has got me daydreaming about sunshine and summertime. So, I decided i’m going to skip straight to summer by posting a few photos I took last August. Last summer I visited the Terre Bleu Lavender Farm in Milton, Ontario. It was my first time visiting a lavender farm, so I didn’t know what to expect. But as soon as I saw (and smelled) the lush lavender fields stretch out before me, I fell in love.

There are two main lavender fields at Terre Bleu and you can honestly smell the fragrant lavender as you approached the farm. It was so lovely and relaxing. Lavender is one of my favourite scents, so you can imagine how happy I was walking through the fields, soaking in the scenery, and breathing in the fresh scent of lavender. The rich purple colour of the fields was so stunning as well. It was such a rich and pleasant sensory experience that I wish I could re-live every day. Perhaps this summer i’ll plant some lavender on my balcony to try and re-create it.

As you enter the garden you instantly smell the fresh scents of basil, rosemary, and parsley. Right next to the herb garden, there was an apiary with a tent set up which you could go into to watch the honeybees work away, turning nectar into sweet honey.IMG_3978Although it started raining while we were there, so Leah and I got completely soaked, we still had a lovely time and enjoyed every bit of our little day trip to Terre Bleu. I am definitely planning on visiting this lavender farm again and am looking forward to making more fun memories there. I hope the next time I go they won’t be sold out of lavender ice cream. (It sounds so good I haven’t stopped thinking about it since!)

I hope you enjoyed reading this post and I hope it brought a little bit of sunshine and warmth to your day!

All the best,
