Chappell Hill Lavender Farm: A Quick Weekend Road Trip

It has been a year since our move to Austin, TX from Singapore. We love traveling; exploring new places. And since we are new to Texas, we ought to be familiar with the place, we now call home.

Visiting a lavender farm is a dream of mine. I kept on praying to God for my husband's company to send him back again to Marseille, France for a business trip during summertime so I could tag along and we could go visit a picturesque lavender field. Haha. (It must be specific, you see.) It hasn't happened yet, so it remains on my list. :)

When I've learned there's one near us, we block our weekend for a trip to Chappell Hill Lavender Farm. Will it be as picturesque as that in Provence?

Obviously, from the shots posted here, it's not quite like that. It's best to visit during the cutting season when the lavenders are in full bloom. It was too late when we came, the lavenders have already wilted away.

It's so hot! We went inside the gift shop to cool ourselves, buy souvenirs and smell the products one-by-one on display. There are also tall trees outside to take shade in. 

Additionally, we noticed a lovely home sitting on the property. And so my dream home is born! I could imagine myself sitting on a 2-story living room with tall windows overlooking the green expanse of meadows outside. Ah, what a relaxing view.
