Tina Duffy sent in these photos of her beautiful lavender farm, Red Oak Lavender Farm. Tina grows lavender on this farm in northern Georgia. Lavender has got to be the most beautiful crop ever!
Beautiful, long stems of lavender flowers. Different cultivars of lavender have flowers in various shades of white, purple, and even pink, though they all smell wonderful.
A long row of lavender in full bloom, a treat for the eyes, nose, and, of course, beloved by all sorts of bees. Honey made by bees feeding on lavender blossoms is prized because it takes on some of the scent and flavor of the blooms.
Wide view of some of the lavender rows. What a beautiful spot!

It isn’t ALL lavender. A bed of cosmos (Cosmos bipinnatus and Cosmos sulphureus, both annuals) adds beauty to the garden—and another course for the pollinators.
