I got the chance to visit a lavender farm  last week in a nearby town from where I work..  But sad to say the lavenders are not in bloom or already had wilted. instead the farm has all other sorts of pinkish lavender verbanas and some other purple colored flowers but not even  one lavender is in bloom . All i got to accomplish is smell lavender  leaves which are also very fragrant. Hopefully I have a better luck next year!
