This year was not the best, we all know it. Early in winter I planned to visit a lot of beautiful places in nature, but that was definitely not possible because of lock down and I missed all the wild flowers of spring. Hopefully next year we will live happier times and things will go back to normal. Everything we know we can have for free, it can be taken away by night, so it’s important and necessary to became more grateful.
In a much happier note, I want to share with you some photos from one of my first road trips after lock down. I went to visit a lavender field here in Romania. It’s not like the ones you can find in Provence, but for the Romanian climate, the lavender was very well grown. Also, after so many days spent in the house, this trip was like a visit to heaven. There is not much to say about it, words can’t describe the beauty and the feeling that you have in a lavender field after so many days with no contact with nature. The smell is divine and the atmosphere is like a fairy tale, I couldn’t get enough of it.
My favorite thing about this flower is that it has a powerful meaning beside its beneficial properties that are very well known. Lavender flowers represent purity, silence, devotion serenity, grace and calmness. Also, its purple color comes with great symbolism. Purple is the color of royalty and speaks of elegance, refinement and luxury. The color purple is also associated with the crown chakra, which is the energy center associated with higher purpose and spiritual connectivity. After a walk in a lavender field, I can tell that all your ‘batteries’ are fully charged, personally I felt better mentally and spiritually. Sometimes a simple thing like a bouquet of lavender is enough to feel a bit better. I hope you are all healthy and happy.
