This weekend, my mother, my neice, my husband and I all went to a Lavender farm on Cape Cod, we walked through the enchanted garden which was a maze of different plants and minature medeival stone castles where faeries were perched in doorways and windows. I showed my neice how to recognize wintergreen, which was abundant along the ground and we walked the paths leading to a field of lavender bushes, their fragrant leaves brushing against our skin and leaving their scent on our clothes. My husband took photographs of the bee keeper and the bees where they were busy making lavender honey. The little store had no lighting and was aglow only with the afternoon sun. There they sold lavender lemonade, lavender cookies, bath salts, sachets and plants. I bought some of the lemonade which was also flavored with hibiscus and a large lavender plant along with some loose lavender. Later, we went to another herb farm and I purchased a lemon balm. Since my husband deals with depression, we decided that a fun project would be to make herbal dream pillows that soothe and rejuvinate the spirit with a mix of dried lavender, lemon balm, sage and a bit of sandalwood essential oil, enclosed in a small cotton pillow case. I have some lovely turquoise paisly cotton material left over from my days on the farm in Deerfield, I used to wrap up little gifts for the farmers when we would trade, I even have turquoise paisly material with roosters on them! What fun we had this weekend, a day at an herb farm is a relaxing, soul rejuvinating experience, that I would recommend for anyone who is looking to refresh their spirit. Communing with nature is my first remedy for depression and anxiety in this crazy world

lavender farm - sounds great...
i even can't imagine it..

depression seems to be most "popular" illness in our world.. =(
i've had some problems with my mind health this winter -not a depression, but panic fears... i've cured now =) my doctor said that all the troubles was because i've lost my self... and because i had no purpose in life, just everyday silly wishes changing everyminute.. in my 23 years, i've behaved like a child..

but a month in country and everyday work on myself...it works...

wishyou every success and smiles!
