Labyrinths by definition are meditative and contemplative meanders. What can add to the relaxation? The fragrant smell of organic lavender of course—1.5 acres of it! Bees N Blooms at the foot of Taylor Mountain in Santa Rosa invites you to experience its “ancient pathway of peace.”

And while the Lavender Labyrinth and Flower Garden takes center stage at this working farm and garden, you can also visit their Farm Stand to purchase all things lavender—sachets, dried bundles, oils—along with other provisions like eggs, pottery, handcrafted earrings, and tea towels.

Gardeners will appreciate the selection of plants. Visit the nursery to get some lavender to plant at your own place. Stroll the labyrinth, visit the chickens and ducks, meander over a bridge to see the beautifully painted beehives (just be sure to heed the signs so you don’t walk in the line of the buzz!), and sit on a double swing bench overlooking the calming landscape.

You’ll have to mark your calendar for your visit—Bees N Blooms is only open on specific dates, including this Easter Weekend (April 16, 17), and Mother's Day weekend. There’s also special U-Cut events and do-it-yourself or guided farm tours focused on bee colonies, lavender processing, and cultivating habitat for pollinators. Make a date with Bees N Blooms!

Bees N Blooms is located at 3883 Petaluma Hill Rd., Santa Rosa. Check their website for dates open and for updates and information. No dogs.
