For the Love of Lavender 

Had the Barefoot Blogger known how fabulous lavender fields are in person, I would have been visiting them much before now.lavender fields


Thank goodness I learned how to get to some of the best fields.

Lavender in Provence


There’s more than one way to keep lavender year-round. It’s more lasting than sachets and bouquets.




Last week, I discovered lavender salt!

A tiny village outside Uzes sells all local specialties, including olive oil milled on-site. The store and the moulin à huile are inside a garage attached to the proprietor’s home.





The most surprising discovery was the building attached to the opposite side of her house — the remains of a church from the 11th century!



This is part of the joy of living in this part of the world. A tiny, out-of-the-way place can be a fantastic find. Ancient buildings still stand alongside some of the most unique local items for sale.



So far, I’ve tried the lavender salt. It’s a winner. The rest is yet to be enjoyed!
