Lavender fields of Provence

Seeing these gorgeous purple fields makes us do dangerous things, like pulling up recklessly by the side of the road, narrowly missing ditches and shoving our noses in the lavender bushes despite bees buzzing precariously close to our faces. Oh the joy of traveling and discovering new things. It brings out the kid in us.

  1. An absolute must and so glad you found some during your trip. One of my favorite things about the region. We did the same looking for sunflower fields. We also found just one and got so excited!
