Ein Traum in Lila: Lavendelfelder in der Steiermark

A dream in purple: lavender fields in Styria

By Julia Wuenscher

The summer of 2022, a special summer. We witnessed something magical - the flowering of 6,000 lavender plants. We remember the day the lavender finally came into full bloom and the whole family loved it. Friends visited us from near and far to see the fields, people asked if the fields were already blooming and even made their way from Carinthia to marvel at the splendor of the flowers. It was magical and calming at the same time. Magically, that field also created a space to come together and be together, something we didn't have on our radar initially. The purple splendor stuck in our minds and we look forward to seeing it again next year.
