Bridestowe Lavender Farm. Tasmania, Australia.

We set off this morning to view the lavender at Bridestowe Lavender Farm at Nabowla, Tasmania, Australia.  Bought a little Teddy Bear, the larger bears are just under AUD 50.00, and I found some on eBay selling for AUD 350.00, why I don't know.  Apparently these larger bears have wheat inside of them and can be put in the microwave then used for medicinal requirements.
The Chinese have gone crazy over these bears which are not that large when all said and done, but they are made in Tasmania, where as the little ones are made in China :)
There is a gift shop, selling lavender products, and of course a small restaurant which we didn't attend today.






Plenty of bees!

    1. Thanks Filip and Kristel. It is lovely to see in reality, and of course the light on the day of taking the photos makes a difference.
      Tasmania has much to offer for locals and tourists alike.

    1. Sure is F. Lovely place to visit, and I think you can go there for a good part of the year.
      Thanks re photos :) In reality the colours are lovely, many people go amongst the lavender and squat down to have their photo taken, and everyone has a good camera, only a few have a little one.

  3. The sight of the lavender reminds me that I must trim mine so that they are ready for next season. I love lavender, and nothing is better than seeing it en masse.
