Lavender, the little purple flower is not only used as ornamental plants for garden and landscape use, but also for use as culinary herbs or commercially for the extraction of essential oils. Because of its usage, it has been widely cultivated in temperate climates area like France, England and India. The small flower itself might not as impressive as other ornamental flower, but when you see the whole lavender fields in full bloom, you might be totally speechless by the magnificent scene. Here, we have rounded up some of the most spectacular lavender-filled meadows in the world. Hope to see these scene personally one day.

UK-based artist Petra Blahova, created this stunning typeface, entitled “My Garden”, by freezing colorful flowers and fruits in alphabetical ice cubes. The whole project is inspired by the flowers all around when the artist walked home from work one day. Using everything from greens and ferns to flower petals and berries, she meticulously arranged them to fit the contours of each letter and create the tactile project. Speking about the project Petra said, “You can create typography from anything!”.
Arizona artist Kathy Klein is a devout lover of plants, animals, people and the divine presence within all. She creates the below beautiful artwork by using vibrant colors and the meticulous placement of every leaf, flower pedal, pine cone and other natural objects. She calls these creations danmalas, based on the vedic sanskrit words dān (“the giver”) and mālā (“garland of flowers”), which translates to “the giving of flower circles”. The careful placement of each object is juxtaposed with the natural imperfection of leaves and flowers, so that there is simultaneously a sense of precision and organic growth; even the ground that the danmala lies on plays a part in adding texture to each piece. The idea behind these danmalas is to remind us all to listen to the unheard voice of nature, creation, and the eternal mystery. [source]
