Purple haze

There is an old homestead at Battle Hill.


It is an Information office now but look what they have planted in the garden and what was almost moving with the activity of the myriads of bumble bees working the flowers.



The scent of lavender was heady in the increasing heat of the morning.


The gardener was busy weeding and feeling very relaxed in such a lovely garden.

        Oh what lovely. A beautiful house with so much lavender, I love lavender, the smell, the colours, the beauty of it. It would be a dream to live their. To the end of my life!

        It is a most beautiful house and garden. It is not that far from the sea either:-)) Next time I visit I will go in to the house and look around if I am allowed to.

      Thank you for you kind comment about my blog. It brings me a lot of pleasure. I admire anyone who uses English as a second language. It is a tricky, tricky language.

    That lavendar is so beautiful. It reminds me of the lavendar fields in France. I imagine the fragrance is very powerful.

      Lavender grows very well in parts of New Zealand too now. My garden tends to be too wet for it but I have three plants that survive!!! The fragrance was very very full by these rows Judy. Just lovely:-)
