SHERBORN (WBZNewsRadio) - For just a few weeks in the summer, lavender blossoms are in full force, and the sweet scent is in the air in Sherborn.
At Sherborn Lavender, a small farm right on South Main Street, visitors can pick their own lavender and bring the sweetness home. Guests were strolling past dragonflies and bees buzzing around the purple buds, scissors in hand.
"It smells unbelievable!" one visitor told WBZ's Suzanne Sausville. "It's very calming and beautiful."
You'll have to act fast to score the blossoms; the farm expects they'll be gone in less than a week.
For ten dollars, visitors can pick a small bunch of lavender from the five acre farm. A small store also sells lavender-based goods like candles, soap, and honey.
Some visitors are looking forward to making cooking with the florals.
"If it smells like good, it's got to taste even better."
