If you've ever dreamt of frolicking through a field of French lavender, here's your chance: tickets are on sale for Lavender by the Bay's locations in Calverton and East Marion through July 19. The magnificent but short-lived bloom came a bit earlier this year, the farm says on its website.
New this year at the Calverton flower farm, at 47 Manor Road, is a covered pavilion with seating situated in the fragrant fields. At the East Marion location, at 7540 Main Road, guests can browse lavender products at a full-fledged farm shop.
Tickets cost $13 each, with free admission for children under 6. Walk-in availability is not guaranteed. "Please leave ample travel time to arrive at the start of your time slot, as summer weekends can have an increased volume of traffic," the farm said in an announcement.
