Some of the best moments of summer can be found in a visit to one of the local farms. I recently learned of a nearby lavender farm just a few miles from my home. So I scooped up my mom and my cousin, who was still visiting and we took off to check it out. We were about a week too early to be able to experience the full blooms, but the sights, sounds and scents were still heavenly!
The farm distills its own essential oils which are then used in some of the products that are sold in their little gift shop.
There are so many wonderful benefits from lavender. Too many to count so we will save that topic for another time.
Our lovely tour of the farm was over but I knew that my favorite berry farm wasn't too far away. Naturally, we had to stop by.
Who can resist a ripe red strawberry fresh from the farm!
I went home and made a fresh pie that very afternoon! Yum! It's one of the best tastes of summer!
Lavender and strawberries! A divine and delicious combination, as well as a lovely summer memory.
