The Stork Made a Big Mistake!

I think when the stork dropped me off he was lost! I should have been taken to a Tuscan hillside to live out my life waking everyday to the sweet smells of lavender. I harvested the first of the figs off of my tree yesterday and I have to say it was the best tasting thing I have ever put in my mouth. I took my youngest to a lavender field this week and we giggled and harvested lavender for an hour or so, imagining that we were in a field outside of Tuscany! (yes she shares my dream to live abroad someday) Then there is the whole Cotswold sheep endeavor, I am still working on my husband on that one, he has however agreed to help me start a lavender field of my own. I love my husband for his never ending support and for the fact that he loves me enough to help me chase my dreams. So here I sit in Oklahoma when I should be in Tuscany or Provence. All kidding aside, I love my life and wouldn't trade it for anything.....but a girl can dream!

All of those pictures are gorgeous! You will have to show us pictures of your lavender field when you get it started. It sounds delightful! Also, figs off your own NEAT!
