Lokie has been chiding me—says the rumor is I’ve run away to the lavender fields.

Just because I was spotted with Suzie in the lavender car with the eye lashes means absolutely nothing!!

We talked it over and decided what happens at the Lavender Farm in Lherm stays at the Lavender Farm 😉


Besides, how can one resist a place this beautiful…


One with signs that say things like…




Where cats cruise down lanes of lavender scented air




And sometimes stop for a snuggle 😉


I saved a favorite seat for you, right in the lap of all that purple extravagance.

I really love the painting that sold Lavender in it was beautiful. !!!! HUGS♥, Me

    Of course I love anything to do with France, including lavender,but what really drew my attention was the cute little VW. Our family grew up with VW’s. Our very first camping trip adventure was in a loaded down VW BUG. Tent, food , four kids, Hubby and I. Still to this day someone In our clan has a VW. So I am always nostalgic with happy memories when I see one,” especially when it has eyelashes”….
