lots of lavendar

lavender farm

On one of our trips to the country, we visited a small lavender farm close to Cobourg.

They grow different varieties of lavender. Some are a greyish purple, and others are a deep deep purple. Each variety smell different too.


This adorable cottage sat on the farm property, I love it's shape. It looks like it came out of a fairy tale story.

Some of their lavendar is infused into ice cream and cheese. They were preparing for a festival for the following weekend, so ice cream and cheese was not available for us to try. I would have loved to taste it, especially the ice cream!

Maybe we can go back next year.

  12. cute house but i think it would look spooky in the dark.
    someone once told me that the dull colored lavendar has a more powerful smell.
    do you know if they were pulling my leg or not?

  22. You are so lucky, when I went to a lavender farm they had just harvested theirs, so I didn't get to see fields of lavender.

  23. I adore the top picture with that brilliant purple hue of the lavender shining brightly. Do you think you'd ever sell prints of your pictures? I'd be your #1 customer!
