The lavender fields of Provence. A stunning view, with the Alps as a mountainous backdrop. The plant itself is part of the mint family and magnet for bees.
Such scenery was an inspiration for the beautiful works of van Gogh.
Used as a herb in cooking and and cultivated for its oil. The word lavender itself is thought to derive from the old French for, ‘to wash’. Awash in a field of lavender is to feel invigorated by nature itself. A memory in the mind forever.
