My Instagram feed was recently flooded with beautiful lavender field photos from Provence. Provence is not in the cards for me this year, but hopefully in a few years! I decided to track down some lavender farms near-ish to me and found one in southern Virginia - the White Oak Lavender Farm.
While it wasn't Provence, it was fun to play in the lavender fields. The white butterfly was particularly difficult to photograph as it kept flitting maddeningly from flower to flower as I attempted to chase it and focus on it. The bees were much more accommodating and stayed put long enough to catch them.
