Lavender fields, Lullingstone, England. By Linda Cronin from Farningham, Kent, UK via Wikimedia Commons. "Seeing row after row of lavender stretching out in front of you in a purple haze, is a beautiful sight. The fragrance hangs in the air and with the steady hum of the bees, soothes and tranquilizes the senses." — Linda Cronin
