Since I missed the high season of lavender last year, I barely managed to return again this year in August.  Since it was the end of the season, I was only able to visit 1 farm that had about 2 plots of flowers of which lavender was one of the various types grown.  While the colors were beautiful, I had a grand time with the lavender ice cream (again) and trying lavender lemonade.  The lemonade was surprisingly good; it tasted more like a “fragrant” lemonade.  While I was initially afraid that the lavender may overpower all other tastes, I am happy to say that it did not.

Lavender ice cream: thumbs up

Lavender lemonade: thumbs up  🙂
