We loved taking the TGV (fast train) from Paris to Avignon for a day excursion to see the lavender fields in Provence.
The sunflower fields were still in bloom also so that was an added bonus.
France has been experiencing the cooler temps this summer just as we have here in Indiana so that has extended their growing season a little. Lucky for us to see the sunflowers too!
This Lavender field has just been harvested the day before we arrived. They leave the bundles in the field to dry. Would have loved to see the harvesters in action. The Lavender fields in France are a must see. I'm so happy to have experienced the sight and being surrounded by the frangrance of my favorite herb.
