So lovely, Karen. I love lavender, not only the way it looks, but the way it smells. I can smell it when I see a photo, like now.

XO,

Sheila :-)

Karen,

Just lovely. I planted some this year. I would love one little bunch to tuck in a drawer.

Have a great week.

Oh Karen, how beautiful! You KNOW I love lavender! I have that book that is in one of your photos.

We have a tiny lavender farm here. We visited it a couple of years ago. It smells devine to stand in fields of lavender, listening to the bees buzzing.
Hugs,
Penny

OH DEAR...you are speaking my third language here dearest....you know this is my favorite flower and scent of all time. How I have missed you, your inspiration and kindness, but this post welcomes me back from my 11 days hiatus. Lovely images, and how I would love to run through that field of lavender with you! Anita

Claudia@DipityRoad said...

OOOH my goodness! I have a lavendar field on my desk top at work I love them so much.

Some day I will come upon one -- that might be a bad thing because i may never leave LOL.

Im soo thinking I need to visit a wizard and have them shrink me so you could take me along for your awesome adventures.

Thanks so much for always sharing the prettiest of life!

Hugs GF

What a wonderful post, wish the computer screen had scent. I love the smell of lavender. Beautiful shots.

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Good Morning Karen Sweetie...
What an absolutely breathtaking post. I love lavendar. I could smell it as soon as I opened the page. (This is the first year that I do not have it, I am afraid my garden just died out, and I have been to ill to replant. Maybe next year.)

I wish there were beautiful places to pop upon here in Phoenix, but there aren't many country roads to drive down. Lots of desert roads, but they lead us only to the heat and cactus. No lavendar houses out here. I bet she even had lavendar soaps? They are so nice to tuck in a drawer or two. Even a linen closet.

I thank you for taking me on this beautiful drive today. It has been so wonderful. Your photos as always, are absolutely exquisite Karen sweetie. I love seeing what you create with each photo. I really loved the lavendar inside of the dove.

Thank you for sharing. Have a wonderful and safe 4th of July.

Country hugs sweetie...Sherry
