Lavender Fields Forever

Yesterday we did a full day of sightseeing upcountry Maui with our house guests. One of the pleasant surprises of the day for me was discovering the Ali'i Gardens Maui, Home of Ali'i Kula Lavender, a lavender farm on the slopes of Haleakala where 45 different varieties of lavender are grown with 75 products also available for sale at the gift shop.

We didn't take any of the tours they offered as we stumbled upon the farm on our way to somewhere else. I guess you could call it serendipity because the lavender farm uses the symbol of the dragonfly for their logo, and this is one of Sherry's favorite symbols too! In the lavender farm brochure, this is written, "Our symbol of the dragonfly also known as the "pinao" in Hawaiian, symbolizes personal rebirth and renewal. That is what you'll experience at Ali'i Kula Lavender. Our dragonfly is also known for being the first to herald in the Spring offering rejuvenation to all living things."

The grounds were gorgeous with flowers growing everywhere...the gift store filled with fabulous lavender products...and the taste of the lavender lemonade...well, let's put it this way: it's unique!
