This is a lavender farm out on Long Island. Sounds like a good spot to go when you just need to runaway from home for a day. This year will be my first trip! I have to find out when they will be in full bloom. Can you imagine the scent in the air? Aah!!

Friday Flowers

Carpe Diem Special #152, Rallentanda’s fourth “friday flowers”

When youth reigned, friday nights were my favorite. The end of the work week was for kicking back and truly relaxing. Most often this meant we were on a blanket, on the floor of a B747, near the galley drinking ouzo and playing poker on the way to a weekend in Athens. Where of course, there was no sleep to be had. Yeah, when youth reigned!
I still love fridays, but now I part take in more earth bound pursuits.
