A few days ago (four to be exact) I posted about the “lavender harvest” in North Carolina at Bluebird Hill Farm.
The next day I received an email from one of my blogging friends, Deborah Lawrenson. Deborah writes one of my favorite blogs, and I featured her latest book, “The Lantern” on my blog.
DO go buy the book: it is W O N D E R F U L!!   We were discussing another subject, when she also asked me if it would be ok if she did a post on this lavender harvest in the U.S., and did I think Norma at Bluebird Hill Farm would be alright with it.
Fine with me, of course!
I wrote Norma who was delighted.
This morning Deborah posted, “Bluebird Hill Farm”.
The entire experience has been EXACTLY why I blog! We are all connected. We make new, totally unexpected, friends through these connections. Norma grows lavender but has never been to Provence. Perhaps she will go someday soon, and maybe, just maybe she will meet up with Deborah!
And it all started with Our State magazine featuring the story on Norma, and me being eager to investigate.
Happy Weekend everyone: absolutely gorgeous weather here. I’m off to Mebane (again!) tomorrow to show a friend some of my finds there!
