This is L'Abbaye De Senaque, just outside the village of Gordes in my beautiful Provence.  This is where the lavendar of Provence is grown and harvested.  The air is luscious with the scent of the violet blossoms and to walk through these fields and graze your fingers over the flowers and hold them to your nostrils is absolutely divine.

Here's Your Healthy Tip of the Day:  Lavendar oil is a natural mosquito repellent; the stalks and flowers placed in a home during the year will keep the nasty biters out of your abode.  Lavendar makes for a soothing pillow stuffer and wonderful scent for your clothing armoires.
