I spent a beautiful day at the Peace Valley Lavender Farm over the weekend. I saw an ad for it on Facebook and decided that it warranted a fun excursion on Friday. It was a hot summer day on Friday but the weather was still amazing. When I drove up to the front gate it instantly struck me that the air carried the heavy scent of lavender and I felt a wave of relaxation wash over me.
I pulled my Jeep in to park on the stone driveway and took my camera inside the barn to explore the lavender store. When I walked in I was greeted by Roberta who invited me to look around, relax, and enjoy the afternoon. Looking out of the window of the barn I noticed that she had a fantastic view of Lake Galena at Peace Valley Park. The hill was covered with beautiful lavender.
I purchased some lavender soap, shampoo, and lip balm. Roberta offered to hold it inside for me while I went exploring. With her approval I fired up my camera and strolled around the farm. Here is a sneak peek from my afternoon...
If you are looking for a fun summer activity, visiting this farm is a fun, relaxing afternoon. Walking around the farm was like something out of the pages of a novel. There were butterflies and the soft hum of bees. The sun had a late afternoon golden glow and it accentuated the unique details of the farm. I have also been using the lavender soap since my visit and I love it, it's a great way to start the day!
