Lavender Gardens

Had a great time picking lavender today at Moonstone Lavender Gardens  in Thurman, Iowa.  Thank you Marcia, for taking my picture.  Now I have proof I was actually there lol !   I’m usually behind the camera.

You had to be careful and not step on any Wee Folk.

If you took a notion, you could stop and take a break any time and play  checkers with Mr. Butterfly.

Couldn’t pass up this wonderful smelling tea. They have a shop there full of all kinds of lavender goodness…too many to mention.

  8. I would be so in HEAVEN if there was a place like that here. I have 2 purple Lavender and 2 white lavender plants. Didn't harvest them this year as they were 'new' - and sparse but next year they should be wonderful.
    How fun for you!
    Blessings
