Exquisite Lavender Fields

How exquisite are God's lavender fields!!!!

Across the island of Hvar, we searched out as many lavender fields as we could find, quite literally soaking in the glorious scent of this amazing creation.

Although we took picture after picture, you just can't capture the beauty of the fields in a photo - especially on a phone. But it was not for lack of trying! Honestly, I didn't want to leave any field that we discovered, each one more beautiful than the next.

And do you know what else was in the fields? Thousands of butterflies! They're a bit camera shy (literally flew up out of the fields as soon as we entered), but at least I captured a few.

This one was kind enough to stay in place for a second while I snapped a photo.

We only picked a tiny little piece of lavender to remember this experience of a lifetime.

But I will admit to standing in the middle of a few fields smelling it to my heart's content.

This day was one of my most cherished ones on the island. I am infinitely thankful to the Lord for creating such beauty, and for allowing me to experience it with my own eyes.

Truly, I'll never forget it!


  1. I can imagine the fragrance!

  2. Experience it with your eyes and nose! :) Can't wait to see this one day...I hope with you!
