My Travel Diaries ~ Touring Peace Valley Lavender Farm

Hello to you all.  I hope your weekend was relaxing and full of fun activities.  As summer hits full swing, our time is mostly spent outdoors.  Busy with the yard, family gatherings and lots of local touring during the weekends.   

It is the perfect time to enjoy a little local touring.  I particularly love to visit historic mansions and gardens, local farms and culinary destinations.  Each year we discover new places that take us on fascinating and interesting journeys.  

Last week, we had the pleasure of visiting Peace Valley Lavender Farm in Doylestown, Bucks County PA.  This small and quaint farm is the perfect destination for those that are passionate about this very aromatic and healing herb. Peace Valley Farm cultivates and sells bundles of fresh lavender, as wells as an assortment of lavender-infused soaps, honey, sugar, body products and culinary herbs.  

The farm is picture perfect.  Situated across from Lake Galena, visitors are free to walk the pretty grounds to enjoy the lovely scent of lavender.  There are a few spots for seating to enjoy the beautiful scenery.  Here are a few photos of the charming farm.

















































The Peace Valley Lavender Farm is located at 802 New Galena Road, Doyslestown PA 18901.  For hours and more information, please visit their website:   http://peacevalleylavender.com/

Thank you for stopping by today.  I wish you a wonderful week.

The Romance of Roses

I have a long long love affair with roses and since June is National Rose month, I though it was the perfect time to share a few of the roses that I picked from my garden a few days ago.  




The rose sure know how to make its entrance.  Our roses are in their full glory with pale pinks, creams, soft yellows and reds competing for attention and the spot for most spectacular.







They truly are summer's gift to all gardeners.  Roses will always elegantly grace any spot in a garden.  



Here I have paired my roses with my other favorite flower, Peonies.  Oh be still my heart.  It is hard to imagine a more beautiful setting.











I always find such joy in capturing the eternal loveliness and romance of roses.  Like little jewels in the garden, roses are add grace and plenty of vintage charm in any garden.   A true visual delight....

Incredibly, roses are more than just a beautiful flower.  Over the centuries, roses have been used for medicinal purposes, beauty products, and even cooking.

I wish you all a lovely and beautiful week.  Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and thank you for stopping by my page today.

Hugs,

Janet

Tablescapes ~ Tea In The Reading Room

It was another fun and relaxing weekend for us.  We spent most of it at the Jersey Shore enjoying time with the family and helping with a few of the preparations for my sister-in-law's annual pig roast which will be held this coming Saturday.  We look forward to this annual event the entire year and this year it is even more exciting since the theme is Hawaii.  Lots of color, tasty food and fun activities.   I can't wait...  I'll try to remember to take a few photos to share.

But Today, I am sharing a few photos of a sweet and feminine tea setting that I recently put together in my reading room.  This is my little private space.  It is where I often go to when I seek a bit of solitude and when I need to unwind.

I just finished a little makeover of this room and  I am loving how everything turned out.  I will do a post of the makeover soon.  I hope you enjoy the photos.





















Thanks for stopping by.  I always love reading your sweet and kind words.


Have a great week,

Janet
