Early Saturday afternoon I entered the grounds of Carousel Lavender Farm, Bucks County, PA. In the heart of historic Bucks County many treasures are to be found, farm with charming barns, garden, amazing fields of lavender bushes and stables for sure counts to be one those of Bucks County Jewels.To my pleasant surprise I learned the farm was featured in the March 2008 Martha Stewart Living and other publications.
I spent about an hour taking pictures, soaking in the lavender scent, watching bees and just taking one step at a time, enjoying the weather and absorbing bountiful sights in front of me.
On the premises is a gift shop full of wonderful indulgences, from fresh lavender cookies, calming soaps, towels, lavender honey, culinary lavender and more eyes pleasing items. I love little shops like these, I never want to leave. Today I bought a bag of culinary organic lavender, it is the one of English variety, which is suppose to have the best culinary properties. I hope to make some cookies or a pie, perhaps bread using it.
Several weeks ago I visited another local Valley Peace Lavender Farm, though a lot smaller than Carousel Lavender Farm, it posses a very rustic and quaint feel. Both are magical and nothing short of amazing and I will be visiting them soon again.
Have a wonderful week.
