Warm Lavender Scents & Beautiful Sunflower Faces

You know me by now, and if you don't, here is who I am:  a soft romantic at heart who finds joy in what is produced by the gracious beauty of mother nature.  I am in awe of old world charm and dream of bygone, simplistic days of flower pickings, daisy chain crowns and laying among the fields staring at the soft ethereal clouds in the robin blue egg sky.  Other days, I am just a crazy whacked out little chick who dances and sings and swings my massive booty around all the while smashing into objects and bruising various extremities, and I absolutely love the fact that my better half calls me "weirdo" as his term of endearment.

But I have to tell you that nothing made me more happy than stumbling across the most beautiful of Lavender farms on my recent holidays, combine that with the happy faces of sunflowers sprouting everywhere, and well, you would have thought I was in heaven, and you know what, I think I was.

This week I will be joining Summer Sundays, Today's Flower and Outdoor Wednesday and thank all of them for hosting same.

I hope this summer brings you some warm lavender scented evenings that make you want to kick off your shoes, let down your hair and dance outside in the soft breeze under a moonlit sky!  Trust me, it is pure bliss!

Until Next Time.

  8. Oh, your photos made me wish I was right there. You have a fabulous eye for how to compose a photo. This was absolutely eye candy and yes, I think I will go and spray a little lavendar so I can feel like I was there with you.

  13. Ohhhh....I can almost smell them. I have never seen fields of lavender in person, but you just brought them that much closer.

    Thanks for being a part of "Summer Sundays".
