Lavender By The Bay

Lavender is one of my favorite herbs.
So when my mother in law asked if we(the boys & I) wanted to go
to the Lavender Farm.
I said”YES!”
Not sure the boys were too into it, but I did a little bribing:).
The farm is Lavender By The Bay
 in East Marion, NY, it is on the North Fork of Long Island.
It is quiet & peaceful and bursting with history & charm.
There is a slower pace here, lined with farms & vineyards,
you feel like you have been transported to a different time, a simpler time.
The North Fork is truly a hidden gem.
I feel so lucky to spend a good deal of time here
blessed that my boys get to experience a little bit of the “country.”
The fragrance is intoxicating,
the minute you drive into the parking lot
the lovely scent of lavender fills the air.
If you spend $8 you get to walk the fields.
The shop was packed with people longing to capture the fragrance
bring it home with them.
I had to hold myself back from buying more than I did.

Shane & Jack had fun,
watching the bees mostly:).

If you are ever in the area, it is a definite must visit.
The aromas alone will make you insanely happy.
The sweet smells of lavender now fill my home,
I am not sure any of the “men” in my house care too much:)
but I am glad I could capture a little piece of this day.

On a side note,
I was featured on Miss Mustard Seed.
Head of over & check it out:)

  1. Hi Rosonda! If you call them, they might be able to send some to you, I think they close in a few days for harvest. If you click the link there should be a #.

  3. I have a couple of lavender plants growing in rotted logs here on the farm and the smell is wonderful on these hot days — I can’t image what a whole field would smell like.

    Awesome photos of your day.

    Thanks for sharing at YSB this week. xo
