The lavender is blooming on the Old Mission Peninsula, as evidenced by this photo I took a few days ago on the corner of Center Road and Blue Water Road, where St. Joseph Catholic Church once sat before it was moved to its current location several years ago.
This lavender field is part of the Secret Garden at Brys Estate, where they sell a variety of lavender products in their retail gift shop just down Blue Water Road.

Lavender season always seems fleeting to me. Once they bloom, the lovely fronds are harvested shortly thereafter and crafted into dreamy things with aromatic scents. Oh so heavenly.
