I am so excited to share these photos. After church we stopped by Pleasant Valley Lavender Farm and it did not disappoint. I’ve been wanting to go for awhile but missed the season last year. Today they told us the peak was really around July 4th but I truly couldn’t tell because the fields smelled amazing. They were so kind and took us around briefly and told us how different lavender smelled differently and you could rub it between your fingers and tell some were more earthy and others sweet smelling. They give you scissors and a basket and you are set free to roam. The are fields all around their house with a little tent shop set up out front. They even had baked lavender cookies that they let us sample!
The bees and butterflies were everywhere but none of them seemed to care about humans traipsing through they just buzzed around us.
This is the perfect escape in New Jersey to fool yourself into thinking you are in France for an hour or two!
