Color Fields

by Kate on March 23, 2012

Spring has officially begun! I always equate the arrival of spring with the dizzying explosion of bright colors and sweet floral smells wafting through the air. There are some very beautiful blooms in our state, but in all my travels across California, I’ve never come across something quite like these lavender fields. How could you not want to take a little run through these rows upon rows of bright, beautiful color?

Before we head out into the weekend, we just want to say thanks to all who filled out ourĀ survey yesterday; we’re excited to hear your suggestions and feedback. If you haven’t filled out the survey yet, there’s still time! (The deadline is Sunday, April 1st.) We’ll be back on Monday, but until then, we hope you have a wonderful weekend among the flowers. Happy Spring!

This colours in this photo are stunning. They remind me of the lavender fields we have in Kent (UK)… when they are out you can get a massage in the lavender fields’ couch sitting over the plants with the amazing aromas relaxing you.

According to the photographer the images were taken in Sussex. I did a little research and I believe the location is the Lordington Lavender farm. Apparently you can also host events like weddings and parties here, which sounds amazing!

Mantanzas Creek winery in Sonoma County, California is well worth a visit if you love lavender.

Thanks Anna, I’ll definitely have to check that out, especially since it’s not too far from here!
