Lavender in Summer

Summer has arrived in Australia and it's getting pretty hot out. Last Sunday was a beautiful day. Sean and I decided to visit Warratina Lavender Farm.
It's a lovely place featuring a tea room serving lavender-flavoured ice cream among other delicacies. Lavender-scented sachets, lavender-flavoured honey and other goodies can be purchased there as well. 
We spent a fair amount of time goofing around amidst the shrubbery. Here I am, surrounded by sweet-smelling lavenders. 
Lavender is one of my favourite flowers. We bought a lavender sapling and planted it in our garden. It's doing pretty well thus far.
On the stitching front, there's been plenty of progress on Moment of Reading. 
Merry Christmas, everyone!

Wow che bellissime fotografie.
un posto meraviglioso....
In Italia è inverno e fa freddo brrrr...
Approfitto per augurare a Te ed al Tuo fidanzato Buon Natale.
