Soothing Lavender

Mr. A and I run a 5K this past weekend. 
My legs still hurt a bit but I had such a great time. 

Good time...when sweating like crazy?

...the race was across a 4-acre lavender field. 
The aroma of lavender filled the air and made me forget the pain 
and very hot summer weather, even at 8:00 am. 
This is the field, isn't it lovely?
I purchased a bottle of wonderful lavender essential oil at the site of the race.
 I feel in heaven when I smell the amazing scent. 
I began to think how serene lavender can be for interiors too.
(Okay, I admit it, there's some purple involved in this post)

Look at these:

Hope you dream in color this week. Enjoy life!
Muchas gracias for stopping by.
Hugs and besitos (kisses),

I have a friend that grows lavender and uses it in different ways..... in fact she throws on a Big Festival that many people attend too.
