One of the best things about Summer is Lavender.  We can't get enough of it.
We love adding it to Jams and Jellies.
We love it in our soaps and body scrubs.
We love sachets of it.
We love looking at it.

A Trip to the Lavender Farm


If you are lucky enough to have a lavender farm near you, July is blossom time in Ontario.


A Trip to the Lavender Farm


It turns out there are several farms not far from us, but the one we visited was Laveanne at Camblecroft, Ontario.

It was a hot day so later we drove to the beach at Cobourg.


A Trip to the Lavender Farm

We caught a glimpse of seagulls openly sunning themselves on their beach blankets.

He didn't like having his picture taken.

He brought his little cooler and beach bag with him.

The beach at Cobourg is beautiful, but almost always the water is cold.

Presentation Idea
We mounted the 4" x 6" painting on an 8" x 10" presentation board and then matted it in a 12" x 16" frame.

I love your painting! I've been on a painting kick this summer and I appreciate your generosity in sharing both your own painting and the inspiration. Your time at the beach looks just wonderful. Great photo of the seagull on the towel and wonderful color there. And what cute little ones. Isn't beach joy the best?
