Despite being neighbours we sometimes overlook some of the magical spots right on our door step!
In need of inspiration for some Christmas gifts I visited the Balingup Lavender Farm today. Some 4,000 plants in full bloom . . . including many varieties of lavender, roses, colourful perennials and some unusual deciduous trees. The aroma is just intoxicating.
. . . and as for my shopping, I found a couple of beautiful gifts. The owners, Pauline and Richard are wonderfully interesting people and are always happy to show visitors through their distillery.
I couldn’t resist a little treat for myself – have you ever tried lavender ice cream?
