For the Love of Lavender 

Had the Barefoot Blogger known lavender fields are so close to Uzes, and how fabulous they are in person, I would have been visiting them much before now.lavender fields


Thank goodness I found out how to get to some of the best fields.

Lavender in Provence


There’s more than one way to keep lavender year round. It’s more lasting than sachets and bouquets.




Last week I discovered lavender salt!

Lavender salt


There’s a tiny village just outside Uzes that sells all types of local specialties, including olive oil that’s milled on site. The store and the moulin à huile are inside a garage attached to the proprietor’s home.





The most surprising discovery was  the building attached to the opposite side of her house — the remains of a church from the 11th century!



This is part of the joy of living in this part of the world. A tiny, out-of-the-way place can be an amazing find. Ancient buildings are still standing, alongside some of the most unique local items for sale.



So far, I’ve tried the lavender salt. It’s a winner. The rest is yet to be enjoyed!
