Lavender Fields, Milton, Delaware

I met my dauther in law and 6 year old granddaughter at Lavender Fields yesterday. The farm used to comprise of 100 acres but now is only 5. Ther are many different settings on the five acres to enjoy. There are rows and rows of lavender plants with a multitude of butterflies flitting from one plant to another.

There are butterfly gardens, vegetable and flower gardens and a zen garden. I especially wanted to go to Lavender Fields yesterday because the Dahlias are at their peak. Volunteers tend to the dahlias each year encouraging the blooms to become as large as possible. There was a plein air artist sitting in this garden capturing the beauty of some of the blooms.

There is a labyrinth surrounded by tall evergreens to walk and reflect. There are two shops on the property with lots of treasures to purchase. There is also an area set up for weddings and a tea room. Lots of benches and shade makes a summer day very pleasant. 

I took a lot of photos of my granddaughter, the blooms and the scenery. We purchased a few things from the gift shop before we left. We enjoyed our time at the farm and will visit again very soon.

I was expecting to see some of the lavender fields, but the dahlia is very pretty as as a consolation!
