Hitchin Lavender from Cadwell Farm in England.   ASPEN CREEK TRAVEL - karen@aspencreektravel.com

There are 17 miles of lustrous lavender for visitors to peruse at the Calwell Farm in Hitchin, Hertfordshire, England, UK. I know the crate says Wallace Farms, but obviously they nicked it from them.

Homemade lavender soap.

Halcyon Days: A Lavender Tea _ And oh, by the way, before you leave, I have a gift for you. I have made this - Lavender Soap - so you will remember this lavender tea and our very nice visit.

Paeonia tenuifolia

Fern Leaf Peony - I love the ants on the opening bud. They are attracted to the nectar and will leave when the flower is fully open. Contrary to an old myth, ants are not required for the plant to bloom.
