Purple Paradise!

I just Love living out here in the country and exploring new places! This time my SIL Rita organized a fun day trip to the Lavender Field farm in Valley Center about 20 minutes east of where I live in Fallbrook CA. Quite a few of our friends and fellow vendors from our show joined us for the field trip . This place is such a treat for the sences, lots of beauty to see and fragrance to smell! They also do weddings and tea parties here.Please enjoy some photos from the day. OX Christie

Brides quarter's and a great chair!

They were setting up for a wedding while we were there.

Some of our friends resting and enjoying tea and scones.

Bunches of lavender that you can purchase in the store.
