Yes, it was as good as I had anticipated. We set off from Austin early in the day to avoid the heat and rush. We went into town and explored many local vendors, but Hill Country Lavender farm was our main destination on the outskirts of Blanco, TX.
Stepping out of the car, the cool breeze was filled with the herbaceous fresh aroma. I wanted to run through the naturally perfumed fields, though I kept my composure. There was a cute little store with lavender essential oil, cookies, and soap, but I wanted to get in the fields for the fresh stuff. This farm grows varies types, but we were cutting the Lavandula Intermedia, or Provence Lavender. We grabbed some sheers and began harvesting!
Nothing is sweeter than relaxing with a nice glass of lavender lemonade.
If you are in Central Texas you are in luck because Hill Country Lavender farm will be open till July 13th. (closed on July 4th) Fri & Sat 10 - 4 / Sun 12 -4.
