"Lavender with spikes of Blue, A sweeter plant was never found"
Visiting a lavender farm today was a unique experience.

In the days and weeks to come, it is my intent to post photos and share my many rich and fulfilling Arizona experiences. Hopefully, this blog will engender and create an interest on the part of the reader to know more about the diversity of the "Grand Canyon State" and possibly visit. (November 23rd, 2009)
