the lavender post

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!

  6. Hi Alison – thats where I buy my lavender from too! Its the most beautiful looking place and the lavender is so sweet smelling. I just say mine is NZ grown as I can’t say its local to me in The bay. Thanks for your really kind words of advice and I am not as organised as I sound!

  7. Beautiful! I spent a week in Martinborough when I was younger. We were visiting my Mum’s family in Wellington and decided to go country for a few days. We stayed in an old farmhouse with bunkbeds, a big old kitchen and a glow worm cave near-by. Fond memories. Thanks for reminding me.
