lavender fields of Haute-Provence forever…:-)

voici les magnifiques champs de lavande – nuances magiques sur le chevalet de l’été… le temps se fige sous le soleil de l’envoûtante Provence, et j’aperçois un mirage lointain avec les peintures de Van Gogh… je suis hypnotisée et piégée dans une toile vivante pendant quelques secondes inoubliables… Rimbaud avait raison: le parfum des lavandes monte jusqu’aux étoiles… 🙂 P.S. “En mûrissant, faites comme la lavande, adoucissez-vous…”(proverbe anglais) – Enrico Macias – la fête de la lavande… 🙂

gorgeous lavender fields – magical shades over summer’s easel… time freezes in the sun of the enchanting Provence, and I can see a distant mirage with Van Gogh’s paintings… I’m hypnotized and trapped inside a living canvas for a few unforgettable seconds… Rimbaud was right: lavender scent raises up to the stars… 🙂 P.S. “Like lavender, grow sweeter as you grow older…”(English proverb)

  7. Oh to be surrounded by fields of lavender. Would love it.

  8. I would love to see this for myself! Gorgeous.

  9. Oh how I’d love to be there. Your description was delicious!!!! Hugs, N 🙂 ❤

  10. Este una dintre frumusetile mele cele mai dragi.

  11. Lavender, the scent just permeates, so beautiful! Visited a Lavender farm in Tasmania and it’s such a wonderful sight to see them in full bloom in summer… the sachets of lavender keep the drawers and cupboards smelling so sweet! Lovely photos and post, Melanie! 🙂

  12. I love lavender… the smell is heavenly, and the taste of it in lemonade is divine! 😉

  13. Once I tried to decide which I loved most. Was it the fields of Lavender, Poppies or Sunflowers. It didn’t take long, I love them all! Lovely post, Mélanie!

  14. Que c’est beau! Visiter les champs de lavande comble tous les sens…

  15. Absolutely gorgeous, Melanie. The scent must be magnificent.

    • yep… I’ve had lavender in my frontyard for years, but… celle de Provence rules and rocks! 🙂 btw, I often have lavender “stuff” around me: soap, dish and laundry washing detergent, oil, eau-de-toilette, etc… 🙂

      • I have been growing it for a few years from cuttings and I am slowly developing a nice collection of different Lavenders. I love it.

        • super-cool! do you have the famous Majorca one?… oh, mine just grows there each year, and I trim it by the end of July… 🙂

          • To tell the truth, I do not know the names of the species. I have four different ones at the moment (I think!), I shall ask my daughter as she is more clued up on this sort of stuff.

  16. des vagues de pourpre qui roulent jusqu’à l’horizon… fascinantes… pour ces jours où il n’y a rien d’autre à faire que de contempler et de laisser couler le temps…

  17. The lavender fields are truly beautiful!

  18. I have a little pot in my garden 🙂 lovely pictures.
