I’ve been really into the countryside lately.
My friends make fun of me for admiring the “rustic Pennsylvania charm” (but can you really blame me?) Funny how I never noticed how pretty it was when I was growing up here.
My mom is really into lavender-scented things, so my sister and I took her to a lavender farm for her birthday last weekend. I never knew that lavender farms existed, but now that I’ve been to one, I can easily say that they’re my favorite type of farm.
There were the grounds with all the lavender plants, an area where the bunches that had already been picked were being dried, and a shop with some really cool gift items. Everything smelled great, obviously.
There were a few dogs running around. This one posed patiently for photos (but ran away when I tried getting a photo with it — how rude).
Apparently lavender soda is a thing (and tastes heavenly when chilled).
Learning new things about lavender production every day …
Hanging picked bunches to dry …
This sun was hands-down the creepiest decor at the farm. I want one for my dorm room in college.
Checking out the rustic Pennsylvania vibe of the shop 😉
It was really fun spending some quality time with my mom and sister and doing a mini photoshoot with them (not pictured here). I spend most of my time in the city these days, so visiting the farm was a nice change of pace. I have to come back more often.
