Turning lemons into lavender

Lavender’s Blue Dilly, Dilly
Lavender’s Green.
Went on a tour Dilly, Dilly
But none could be seen.


It was a dull and drizzly Saturday on a much-welcomed long weekend. Some friends and I went on an out-of-province day trip. We were not going very far; we were heading to Lavender Ridge in Luskville, Quebec at the foot of the Gatineau hills.

Our quest was to see fields of blue flowers, to procure aromatic gifts then go for a tasty lunch somewhere new.

When we arrived, we saw rows of lavender pots for sale. There were also rows of pots lined up on the damp grass.


The lady of the domain greeted us and provided an update on the situation. Due to the wet spring, the first crop had failed to show for the end of June. She was waiting for the fields to be dry enough to send out the tractor and plant another crop that would hopefully be ready by the end of July.

Since she was minding the store and waiting for a batch of bread from the oven, she gladly supported our request to tour the fields, to take photographs and look around. She cautioned us to stay on the upper fields and not to venture into the lower, wetter ones.

Follow this blog link where we continue our trek through vineyards and wet fields, where we encountered pastoral and random scenes.


We made lemons into lemonade on that drizzly day.

Thanks for dropping by.
