23 Most Beautiful Lavender Photos - Hand Picked

Lavender - magnificent plant. It can sooth your soul and aching muscle or back. And if you take a closer look, it seems it should be present in every garden. Why do garden designers use it in landscapes? Maybe because it is so dependable? You can also pick up flowers and prepare your own lavender oil or you may get lavender bath and you can have it almost fresh all year round.


For today's Inspirational Monday I made up a special collection of hand picked, most beautiful pictures of lavender.

Those are beautiful pictures. There are lavender fields a few hours away from here and every year I tried to figure out a way to see them.

Hi Ewa,
This is my first time to your blog. I love the lavendar photos. I was on a lavendar farm in Oregon not to long ago. Please feel free to visit my blog and have a look

Amazing shots! Thank you. I like the lavender in the crate. I like how the grey and blue play off each other.

A wonderful post, Ewa. These pictures are very soothing and memorable. July is lavender season here. There is a lavender farm in Connecticut and now I will call there and take friends to see it next weekend.

Hi Ewa, beautiful pictures! We have some lavender at our farm. We recently discovered that lavender grows very well here. I have prepared some additional flower beds so I can plant more this spring. I am going to have to learn about growing and caring for them. I will be following you to learn more about lavender. Christa
