Hello dear friends !
Lavender is very high on my list of favourite flowers. How I would love to travel to Provence to see its magnificent lavender fields ! Much closer to where I live are the beautiful lavender fields of Bleu Lavande located in the eastern townships in Fitch Bay. After two and a half hours drive from home I can walk in Bleu Lavande’s fields and admire their 110,000 beautiful lavender plants. On some days they have open air concerts, and walking or sitting in the fields with the lingering sounds of a violin floating in the air and enveloping the fields is a most calming experience. It’s a marvelous way of leaving all worries behind and spend a few hours relaxing and wandering around the fields. They also have the most gorgeous boutique filled with exquisite products made with essential oil coming from their plants. This is where I bought my lavender plants. It was out of question that I was going to buy them from my local green house, they had to come from Bleu Lavande ! I bought three plants and a few weeks ago, when they were blooming, I sacrificed a whole plant just to make photos. One must really love photography to sacrifice a whole plant of lavender, I’m telling you ! But now I have a beautiful bouquet of dried lavender.

I’m heading towards the first year anniversary of this blog. When I started last September, the orientation and main focus of my blog was to be about decoration, crafts, painting projects and antique and vintage finds, all of which I am passionate about, and I never intended it to be a photography blog. So what happened ? I had always been interested in photography but I had put it aside for the past six years. Starting this blog re-ignited my interest in photography and now it has grown to become a great passion. You cannot imagine all I have learned in the past ten months. From my new camera to photography basics and more, to photo editing with Corel then Photoshop. It has been an amazing ten months of creativity and learning. I hope you will follow me along in my photographic journey. And I would like to say a big thank you to all my followers and subscribers, and to all who take the time to leave me comments, without you it wouldn’t be the same. All your comments and visits are greatly appreciated and mean a lot to me.
I’m wishing you all a great end of summer !
