Just when I think I'm getting a handle on the busyness, the boat starts a rockin' and well you know the story, sewing gets pushed to the back burners. So today I thought I would share another little Maui gem. I've been wanting to show you the Ali'i Kula Lavender Farm in upcountry Maui. It is one of my favorite places to visit on the island. The gardens are gorgeous, the air is brisk and cool in the early morning, and the sweeping view of the island cannot be beat.

Would you like to take a tour?
|Entrance to the Gift Shop|
You will see many different varieties of lavender growing throughout the terraced mountainside. Not only is this farm distinguished by its lavender, but also by its huge variety of proteas and succulents.
There are stairs to climb, porches to pad across, purple chairs to rest your buns upon, and beautiful sculptures gracing the trail all along the way. If you have children, there is a scavenger hunt just for them. As they explore the grounds with you, they can collect stamps to fill up their card. With the last stamp collected, escort them into the gift shop for a delightful lavender treat.
Do get your exercise and walk to the top of the farm if you are able.
You won't be disappointed for this will be your reward!
Have a wonderful weekend Everyone!
