Found these beautiful photos of lavender fields in China, which start blossoming in late June. Rolling lavender fields usually bring to mind the romantic, rolling fields of France’s Provence. You can find these lovely, tourist friendly fields in northwest Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, in Yining County.
