The Purple Sea of Lavender

Hello dear friends, happy Friday!!! Got any plan for the weekend yet? Wish you do have fun. Well, last Sunday my friend Iren did have some fun. She went to the lavender garden in Suzhou with her colleagues. It’s such a pity that I did not go there. But the good news is that, I can take a look at their photos. And I am going to share with you today, let’s enjoy a feast of lavender.


When it comes to lavender, my first impression would be Provence. But for better knowledge, I googled it. Here is the more detailed information on Wikipedia. The lavenders (botanic name Lavandula) is a genus of 39 species of flowering plants in the mint family, Lamiaceae. It is native to the Old World and is found from Cape Verde and Canary Islands, southern Europe across to northern and eastern Africa, the Mediterranean, south-west Asia to south-east India. Many members of the genus are cultivated extensively in temperate climates as ornamental plants for garden and landscape use, and also commercially for the extraction of essential oils.


Ok, let’s just do not bother too much about it and enjoy the purple sea of lavender. So dreamy and fantastic, the lavender garden is honored as the Provence of Suzhou. You do not need to go far to France, just at home you can enjoy it!!!
