Back to the Lavender Fields

(click on pictures to enlarge)
Today, I feel like returning to the lavender field. (Only in my mind, of course.)

The one on Maui called Ali`i Kula Lavender or “AKL”. 

Nestled In the uplands of Maui, along the skirt of Haleakala  which means “House of the Sun”.

I can hear the trickling of water falling from the beautiful fountain while I take in the beautiful view of the Hawaiian coastline below.

I am enveloped in the scent of lavender.  I think I will stay here awhile learning about all the types of lavender one can grow.

“Lavandula x intermedia” is also known as “Dutch” Lavender. 

The x means it is a cross with two plants and the intermedia means that these crossed plants have the best qualities of both parents.

I am taking a deep breath and then exhaling slowly trying to remember to remind myself of “this place” during the stressful moments of this week.
