Several people have asked me recently where I get the lavender from to fill my embroidered squares and hearts. I'm more than happy to share. In fact, today I made the trip out to see Dinah and Richard who run Hauiti in Martinborough, as I was running low on lavender myself. Their farm is just breathtaking and it's never a chore to drive out there. Take a look at the photo gallery on their site and you'll see what I mean.
Anyway, Dinah generously agreed to my taking a few photographs so that those of you across the seas could see exactly where I've just been this morning.
You know what? Each day when I open my eyes, I think about how lucky I am to live in such a beautiful area of New Zealand. Feel free to come visit!
