Lavender Fields in Delaware

As I mentioned a few days ago...lol. I spent a couple hours at the Lavender Fields of Warrington Manor in Milton, Delaware last summer during home leave. They have multiple fields of flowers besides the lavender (such as a Bee and Butterfly Garden; Dahlia Garden; Wildflower Garden; and Zen Garden. So here's a post of pretty pictures with flower names where I know them.

Echinacea (Echinacea purpurea) and black eyed Susan (Rudbeckia hirta)

These seem to be the same, just different color variations.

I think this is Gaillardia (Blanket Flower), part of the sunflower family, Asteraceae.

Unknown white flower

More Echinacea (Echinacea purpurea) with bee friends.

I think these are rose blooms that have pink spots which apparently are Botrytis cinerea (a fungus) or maybe a camilla.

Lots of gladiolus (Gladiolus sp.), also called a sword lily, which are in the iris family.

Seems to be some sort of mini orchid or lily.

Old silo on the property.

Some type of orange lily.

English lavender, (Lavandula angustifolia, Lavandula officinali) and lavender with cabbage white butterfly (Pieris rapae).


Black Swallowtail butterfly (Papilio polyxenes) on pink/purple flowers.

Old fence with pink wildflowers.

Dahlia flowers.....so many colors and vanities.

Bird houses at the edge of a field.

Some sort of pink and white cosmo hybrid.

Okra blossom, (Abelmoschus esculentus) - tasty and pretty!

Fancy orange lily (I used to have a dog name Lily, named after my favorite flower at the time).

Small green cherry like fruits with black spots on a tree branch.

Hibiscus! We aren't in the tropics anymore, how did that happen! Likely the hardy Luna White (Hibiscus moscheutos) - both the pink and white are the same name, but different varieties.

More english lavender!

Possibly another Dahlia.

Yellow chrysanthemum (Chrysanthemum sp.)

Some type of orange mum.

English lavender bunches drying in the shop.

One this cold and gray winter day, mentally walking through the flower garden has warmed and brightened my day. Hope you enjoyed it also!
