Lavender by the Bay, East Marion, New York

We had plenty of time to catch the ferry, so the sign on Route 25 East caught our eye: Lavender by the Bay Lavender Farm. The fields behind the barn glowed in the sun. Lavender, as far as the eye could see, and the scent was at once intoxicating and calming. We purchased bunches of freshly picked sprigs and some infusios for tea or cocktails. I think lavender will be ingredient in some upcoming dishes. Definitely worth the stop!

You know, I have two lavender plants in my garden and not much in the way of the great flowering that are seen in this image. I get the aroma and scent is amazing at the farm.
