And you can almost ... mmmmmm ... smell it!
ooh I can smell the lavender....if not feel the heat!!
Ooooh! I can almost smell it!
I have lavender, but none so beautiful. The picture is lovely and I can almost get the scent of those plants all the way over here.
Beeeeeuteeeful. I can smell it!
I never had any luck with lavender, wherever we lived...but how nice to see a field in bloom!
Ah, lavender! As beautiful as it smells!
Why, oh WHY, amd I not there?!?!
When will someone invent computers that transmit smells .... ahhhhh
Funny how smells remind us of a time in our lives. For me it's the smell of roses that remind me of summer.
I was shocked to discover that Texas actually has a Lavender Festival. It is held every June in Blanco, which is several hundred miles east of where I live. (here in hopeless West Texas we only have annoying weeds!).
Lots of that grown around here, a bit soggy mind.
Wonderful picture - and comment text-colour to match! The Lavendar in my garden has survived the slug-onslaught. What an inspiring plant - pretty, relaxing, scented, wards-off moths and defys slugs in a rain storm! Thanks for sharing
Oh how I love to walk down each row brushing my hand against the blooms as I walked. Heaven.
Beautiful! I'd love to be there smelling it as I walk about!
Oh, I bet that smelled just heavenly! :)
I wish we could grow lavender here in Oregon but it's too damp.
Sooooooo pretty! Purple is one of my favorite colors.
Please put me in a field of lavender anywhere in the world, and this island would suit me nicely. Thank you!
Hi Jenny,Thanks, did I need that! It made 'scents' to me. I've heard a rumour that the mysterious glowing orb, but a whimsical memory, may someday some day shine again upon this green and getting greener land :)
It's so beautiful. We don't have them here, I think, only the smell gets captured in soaps/fabric softeners, etc. Managed to get a whiff of the real stuff in New Zealand, though. It made us (2 friends and myself) stop in our tracks outside someone's garden to check it out. The house owners must have thought we were mad (if they'd seen us)
Oh yes, I do smell it's lovely scent...and I'm nearly blown away with such deep color! A marvelous field!
Oh my .. that looks so lovely.
I'm sniffing! I'm sniffing!Wish there are lavenders here, but it's too darn hot for them. :(I love that shade. It's one of my favourite colour. ^^*must go to Hokkaido and visit a lavender park soon*
Many people here have lavender in their gardens, often planted next to roses; apparently it helps to keep the roses free of bugs.At the moment, I enjoy lavender scent every morning - the shower gel I am currently using is made with lavender from the Provence :-)
Just like my back garden! Except for the blue sky, and dry ground and er... miles of space.But I do have a few pots of lavender - and I will sit out there sometime this summer!
Lavender is wonderful in both forms, colour and perfume. Yesterday I finished a jigsaw puzzle of a lavender field similar to your photograph. Coincidence!
I have a very similar photo as my screensaver at work, helps me stay relaxed :-)
I love Lavender - the aroma there must be heavenly!
So beautiful! :-)
You make me want to sniff my computer screen, but OK, I won't make a fool of myself ... Gorgeous colour, heavenly scent! ^^
Beautiful. I bet the bees loved it too. I'm very fond of Lavender.Maggie XNuts in May
Oh lush - I can imagine the aroma in walking there.Anna :o]
Isn't summer one of those urban myths?
Are you sure you didn't sneak in a photo of Southern France for us? I can imagine myself walking through that field of lavender.Darla
mmmm i can just smell it now--so lovely :)
My favorite color and scent! Thanks for this beautiful image!
This is a nice surprise..you are showing a lavender farm, somewhere, and my daughter is going on a 5K run tomorrow at a lavender farm. How sweet is that?
There used to be a beautiful large lavender farm near where I live in New Zealand. They made all sorts of lavender products and had a lovely tea room. I went back one year and it had closed and all the plants went wild within a couple of years. I thought it was rather sad.
The wife must not see this picture. I repeat the wife must not see this picture. If she does, she is going to drag me here. And saying drag makes it sound so negative but it is quite lovely. I just know if I am going to England I am going to make her watch an English Premier League game first then we can go to the lavender farm. Have a good one.
I can feel the scent! Surperb scenery.Thank you for tharing this.
I've just been looking at two photographs of a lavender field in Somerset. One last year, an ocean of deep blue and one this year: green with the odd spot of blue.
Gorgeous! Lavender drops often go into my bathwater for a natural, unwind inhalation. Been know to actually drop off a time or two!
I bet the summer breeze gives off a scent of lavender, but don't get any sand in your shoes.
Oh this wonderful photo so reminded me of the two astounding Lavender Farms near us when we farmed in Tasmania. I could roll in the natural stuff! :)
Jenny,Your Lavender summer looks so comfortable and dry!! I want to have summer like this. From my PC their soothing fragrance is coming. I wish I could see a lavender field.keiko
Beautiful! I love lavender, and so do the bees.
oh my...how gorgeous...bet that smelled wonderful....
Enjoy your purple fields.
Is lavender evocative of summer to British people? I can almost feel the scent of the lavender from the rows of the field. Lavender and rose are my favorite aroma of shampoo.
Guess what? We have had no rain today, Sunday; at least, not so far.There's time tough, there's time . . . . . .
Oh, how beautiful! I bet it smelt incredible! I'd love to visit Jersey one day.
Wonderful! Nice colors and it must be nice scent!
Yum. I can almost smell it just looking at your pictures.
Oh I just love this, Jenny! I can almost smell the scent of lavender here ... or is it just because I did the laundry? It's the scent that's all around our house. My bath gel is lavender. The dried flowers in the bathroom are lavender. The laundry dryer sheets are lavender. I'm sure it's on other things I haven't inventoried, like hand soap, etc.Strangely enough, this photo is the first time I've ever seen a lavender field. So beautiful!
i can almost smell it.
Your not posting. Are you working, holidaying, kids ing, or is T's back causing trouble? Hope you are well.
Oh, one of my absolute favorite scents! I believe my Heaven may well be comprised of three big fields - one of lavender, one of lilacs, and another to play ball on.
So very beautiful and I can imagine the strength of the perfume.
That is almost a scratch 'n sniff photo - I am sure I can smell the lavender just by looking at it.
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!
oh wow!! i have never seen anything like this before, but have heard about it. thank you. beautiful!
One of my favourite colours... I've never seen a whole field of them like that (in pictures I have, but not "live").
