Sing with me: Let me take you down ’cause I’m going to… lavender fields forever… Well, The Beatles’ song is actually Strawberry Fields Forever and had nothing at all to do with fields or fruits. But the song has been on repeat in my Spotify the past several days as I finalize the plan for our trip to Provence. In a few weeks, we will be flying to Marseilles, renting a car, and for four days we’ll be driving around the South of France. My mission is singular: To see lavender fields that seem to go on forever and ever… and ever. Based on my research, June through August are the best months to go when the flowers are abloom.
I cannot describe how excited I am about this trip. Just as our last trip to London to watch cricket had been entirely for my husband, this trip—with the very feminine theme of no other than flowers—will be mostly for me.
I did a quick Google search for ‘lavender fields’ and these lovely, lovely images came up. If I can take photographs close to any of these, I’ll be very happy.
