Cape Cod Lavender Farm



Last week, I made a daytrip to Cape Cod. I already posted about Sandwich, Massachusetts in a previous post.

I had read about the Cape Cod Lavender Farm in Victoria Magazine and I decided since I was not going to be in Provence any time soon I might take a daytrip to the Cape to see the lavender there. My friend Lori Lee and my sister joined me. Lori Lee had been diligently calling the farm every week so we would know when the lavender was in full bloom.



There was a cute shop on the premises. We bought some lavender products.



If I had a garden, I would have bought a lavender plant.



Here's a view of the inside of the shop.



Aw,the fresh scent of just picked lavender.



Such pretty colors all around us.



There was even a fairy garden on the grounds.



Love the dark blue lavender.




All of the lavender at this farm must be hardy enough to survive the Cape Cod Winters.



We had a wonderful time at the Cape Cod Lavender Farm. Afterwards, we headed out to Chatham and Orleans. Read all about it in my next post!

Oh my gosh I had NO idea there was a lavender farm on the Cape!!! Probably because I don't get to the Cape much ( I tend to head north to NH or Maine for day trips/weekends). I have got to visit there now! Thanks for sharing!!! :-)

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and commenting on my post about my possible job change.

I just love your photos of the lavender farm. It is such a quaint place. I would love to visit there one day. I love the scent of lavender and use lavender essential oils to make my house smell nice. :-)
