It’s been almost 2 years since I have visited Lavender Pond Farm in Killingworth, Connecticut. My friend Inge mentioned that she would like to visit this locale so off we went yesterday morning! It’s an absolutely stunning locale with multiple varieties of lavender stretching as far as your eye can see. What is the cost of admission you ask?? Free!
There are plants in full bloom, plants just waiting to burst into bloom, tiny little plants just starting to fill out. But that’s not all, there is a lovely gazebo where you can sit and people watch as many of us are wont to do, another sitting area with some shade and new since my last visit…..a chess board and chess pieces approximately 3’…yes 3 feet tall for your enjoyment and or amusement.
A word of caution, there are bees by the hundred feasting on the pollen of the lavender blossoms.
For you shoppers out there, a charming gift shop awaits you with everything lavender available for purchase including lavender plants and garden ornaments soaps, essential oils, sachets and pillows.
And yes, as you drove up, you may have heard a rooster announcing your arrival. All I can say is feel free to look around, don’t rush, it’s a very tranquil, sweet scented place to visit. If you walk down the sloping driveway, there’s a beautiful little pond and a stone bridge over a trickling brook.
And by now it was lunch time so thanks to a call phone GPS I think we visited parts of Kansas but ended in Montville in a new Asian restaurant for a very tasty lunch with another pal, Bill.
And as always, click on any image to start your slide show. Thanks for stopping by. ep
