Nothing like a sunny Sunday, when the summer weather is holding on past its September 22 sell-by date. Of course it is best spent daytripping while we can still enjoy a roadtrip. I just spent a couple of hours at the Steed & Company Lavender Farm, outside of Sparta, Ontario. With its beautiful grounds to walk, horses to watch, lavender to sniff and more lavender to buy, I highly recommend this as a day out. And with my purchases of lavender linen water, lavender buds for my linen closet and lavender essential oil for my pillows, I am reminded of last summer’s September trip to the south of France. It might not be as exciting as a trip but it does make September nights (crisp, cool and lavender-scented) a nice way to start the new year (because I always think the new year starts in September).
