Lavender

One of the many highlights that Steve mentioned when we talked about going to Provence for a few days was the abundance of lavender fields around the area where we staying. He wasn't wrong. 

 

Just occasionally, I like to include some human interest in my photos. Alas, I had to make do with Gordon in this.

I like the poppy protest, Alan.
Alan: I have some more views of the poppies at another time.
Très joli, j'imagine le parfum.
Alan: Alas, my sense of smell is vert poor and I could not enjoy the aroma.

This is all very wonderful. The air looks to be really clear, the sun constant, and I bet the lavender smelled wonderful too
Alan: I don't have much of sense of smell which on occasions is an advantage but I do miss it at other times. We were fortunate with weather; hot but not oppressive.

Oh, I love the lavender fields in Provence, too! This is a wonderful image! It inspires me to go back to France.
Alan: Already we are talking of a return visit in 2020. The fields of lavender were one of the many highlights of Provence that we enjoyed.

I bet the smell was terrific Alan, not that I’m a betting man.
Alan: I don't have much of sense of smell which on occasions is an advantage but I do miss it at other times
What a magnificent view
Alan: One of many such fields in the area.
One of my highlights in Australia were the fields of lavender. This is most beautiful, Alan.
Alan: We have lavender fields in this country but little of the scale in this part of France.
The colour is stunning, Alan.
Alan: Thanks, Beverley; I thought so, too smile
A beautiful field and background. We have a large area of Lavendar fields over here just outside Hunstanton, they are a very popular tourist attraction.
Alan: There are some near me, too. We struggled to get the fields to ourselves; too many non-photographers trying to do selfies and some even with drones.
Very impressive. Of course English Lavender is vastly superior
A lovely shot Alan,Gordon did a good job...smile
