Bleu Lavande  lavender fields

Lavender fields, seasonal activities, and lavender products are a unique find among the Eastern Townships of Quebec, just north of the Vermont border.  One of the largest lavender producers in North America, the largest and only certified one in Canada, has many products and more on the business on their website.   Fields are in bloom so best visited, with photos below, from July.   Various aspects and stages of production are depicted.
