Terre Bleu

August 2017 - Toronto ON

Imagine you don't have to fly to Provence to see fields of lavender. And the smell!



Terre Bleu is the largest lavender farm in Ontario with over 35,000 plants and eight varieties on 60 acres.

There is an entrance fee of $10 plus tax on weekdays and $15 plus tax on weekends. Weekends get extremely crowded and they use police to control the traffic.

Even on a Tuesday they had run out of lavender ice cream, although it was not that crowded.

A break from purple!



On our way back.


 So strange the lighting makes this look wintery!



Terre Bleu lavender is harvested throughout the summer starting in mid July for distillation and drying.

  2. I like the door and the sentiment. The first time I ever saw a photo of someone with a selfie stick was in someone's photo in our state of Tasmania at a lavender farm, and of course the person was of Asian heritage.

  3. Lovely shots, Jackie! I had no idea lavender grows in this part of the continent.
