In the months of June and July in Tuscany (Italy) it’s possible to see a spectacular landscape the color of lavender and violet. Fields of lavender in bloom stretch for miles, a visual and also an aromatic delight. In years past, many of these fields were cultivated in wheat but in recent years they’ve been converted to lavender. A number of farmers in this region are now active beekeepers, producing both lavender flavored honey and scented beeswax (candles). Photo taken on June 20, 2020.
