Lavender Fields Forever.........
oh No That was Strawberry Fields.....

On Thursday I woke up to the most wonderful day here on LI
The humidity was gone, sun was shinning and a gentle breeze was blowing.
I got up, had a quick up of Java and headed of the East End of LI with a friend.

It was a great day to enjoy the Gift God had sent our way.
Here are a few of the places we stopped at.

Lavender Fields

These are the lavender fields that I visited on Thursday.
They are located at the Eastern End on Long Island , NY

It was absolutely beautiful. Oh and the car still smells sweet.

Did I buy some?

What do you think?

But of course, I could not pass this up.

I picked up several bundles of lavender for making Lavender Wands.
I will post them when they are completed.

Here is the lady wrapping up my lavender.

Next we were back on the road enjoying the drive with no traffic. Things on Eastern LI all change on Friday.
Locals stay away due to the traffic. We stopped at one of the many local farm stands to buy fresh corn for dinner

Oh my gosh, everything looked so good. Look at the dried statis flowers. They were gorgeous

Then we were off to a little town called Greenport. We treated ourselves to a Lobster Lunch.
Here is the view from our table. Can you just feel the peace.
And lunch was mmmm good at Claudios Clam Bar

Then we were off to more shopping.
Found this cute little shop.
Bought something here for my Summer Fun Swap.

Oh no, you can't see it yet. That would spoil the fun!

It was a very rewarding day. Looking forward to returning again very soon.
Next trip I will be focusing on all the thrift shops and antique stores.
Hope you all have a blessed weekend. Stay cool and safe.

What a glorious day you had! I find the lavender fields just phenomenal. It is on my list of things I hope to do someday--visit lavender fields in person! Nice post.

I love flowers of all types and I really like lavendar, but I've never seen or smelled the fresh stuff growing. I do like the dried so I can just imagine how glorious the fresh is.

Thanks for stopping by my place, and feel free to come back anytime. :-)

Supper tonight? Homemade garden veggie soup. ;o)

Have a wonderful and blessed weekend! :-)
