Lavender in July

Visited the high hills east of Mount Ventoux a couple of weeks ago and was delighted to find the lavender fields in bloom. I didn't have time for a real photo shoot but these candid shots will give you an idea of these landscapes' unpretentious and rugged beauty.

Je suis passé par les hauts plateaux à l'est du Ventoux il y a quinze jours et j'ai été enchantée de trouver les champs de lavande en fleur. Je n'avais pas le temps de m'arrêter pour une vraie séance photos mais ces deux vues vous donneront une idée de la beauté de ces paysages sauvages et sans prétention.

Reminds me of the lavender fields of Sequim-Dungeness Valley on the Olympic Peninsula here in the U.S.

Beautiful. I have never been in France when the lavender was in bloom.

Just beautiful. I was on Pinterest just a short time ago and there are some iconic views of the lovely lavender fields. But your shots show the reality of the whole scene, and I love this rugged beauty. Thank you for sharing.

Cela ne peut pas mieux tomber, Pendant que je regarde tes jolies photos, à la radio on parle des champs de lavande de la Drôme.
Je ne puis rivaliser mais j'ai dans mon jardin une belle bande de lavande.

Sur des terres à la limite du désertique, ce petit miracle qui revient chaque année. Il ne manque que l'odeur.

La Provence, si bleue en été. Si grise souris en hiver.

Ah, et bien moi aussi j'ai photographié ces champs de lavande, c'était dimanche en revenant de la fête des moissons qui se tenait à Revest-du Bion. On a fait une halte au champ de courses de Sault, qui est aussi en son centre un champ de lavandes. La fête de la lavande à Sault aura lieu justement au champ de courses le 15 aout.

One of the great beauties of Provence. When I was in Maine last week it was all blueberries and lobster.

The dream of Provence. There is a famous garden in the Luberon where the designer has created a river of lavender. It meanders down his hillside like a snake.

Jilly - If you remember where that is, I think I'd love to go and see it one day!
