relaxing saturday afternoon

A trip to Lavender Farms  in Glen Allen Va.  to purchase  a lavender plant that I do not have which is munstead Lavender.  I have other types and they all do very well coming from this farm.
Steve has to have lavender ice cream along with me having honey ice cream sitting near the creek  that runs through the property.

sitting near the waters edge makes it all the more pleasant and  feeling very relaxed watching the water trickle through the rocks.

I can never get my flowers to look this pretty.   The cocks comb is huge.

If one cannot get anything else to grow,  then grow zinnias.  They always come through for me having pretty summer flowers to cut and bring inside.

looks like some collards here in beds

Black pearl pepper

Nice old plough in a bed of flowers I noticed coming in and leaving the farm

here at home the moonflower is blooming for this evening

They seem even brighter when it's dark and the light from the lamp post is lit.


  1. This looks like a great place to visit and I'm putting it on my bucket list. Love your photos, those flowers are so vibrant and you've identified the black pearl pepper which I took a photo of today and didn't know what it was. Thanks for that too. Hope the rest of your weekend is a great one :)

  2. What a treat, Betsy. Beautiful flowers and such a beautiful place to spend some time especially eating that fancy ice cream. Your moonflower is wonderful. I have always wanted to plant a moonflower vine but never have so far. Happy Sunday..Judy

  3. Oh my, what stunning photos, dear Betsy! The flowers took my breath away. May your week be delightful. Hugs!

  4. I like all those flowers but it's the moonflower I'm attracted the most.
