Ah good to know... wish I asked around before I went. Nonetheless, beautiful place!

If you go again, research ahead of time the date of the Lavender Festival or Harvest Festival ; the different towns/areas will have different small festivals on different days.

The fields will be cut in preparation for the Festival a day or 2 prior. The festival celebrates the actual crop, not the beauty of the fields. So ideally you want to be there 1 week before the festival day for best bloom time and nothing cut yet ; too early and the fields are a mix of green and purple which you don't want either.
