lavender fields

August 25, 2009 |  Category:   outings travels













Who knew there were lavender fields on Long Island? But I guess if the North Fork is wine country it makes sense. This is my first time on a lavender field and the smell is intoxicating! The minute we stepped out of the car the fragrance enveloped us and the girls were both in flower heaven. After a summer of “don’t pick those flowers!” whenever we are in the city, they can finally pick all the flowers they want. Highly recommended if you’re out in the North Fork. I don’t know how crowded it gets, but we went on a weekday and had the field all to ourselves.

    A special treat to see the picture of you and Claudine today. No reason to be shy in front of the camera … both of you look simply stunning.

    Annie, the lavender field is called “Lavender by the bay” and it is right outside Greenport on the North Fork on the way towards orient Point. We went peach picking at Wickham’s Farm because it was literally a 5 minute drive from where we were, but there were a few places to pick along there.
