We were out of the villa and on the road by 8:15 on June 27 in search of the blooming fields. Our three vehicles sped into the hills, following a twisting road to higher elevations. We stop for photos of the countryside.

|It looks like that might be a wine co-op down below.|
We bump along a couple of dirt roads and arrive at blooming lavender, up hill and down from our parking spot. We all pile out and spread into the fields. I restrain myself to showing a sampling here.

This is a nice bouquet, brought to us at the villa by a charming lavender grower.
There'll be more another day. We went out for a sunset lavender shoot several days later.
