Lavender!

Thank you to all of you who basically said , "Finish the Pillows!"  You said nice things about the designs so I am committed to finishing them.  Well, the weather man said Thurs. and Fri. would both be great weather days.  We had things to do on Thurs. so  we decided to make the trip to Sequim(pronounced Skwim) on Fri.  This town has a huge Lavender festival every summer.  We have gone many times. It is quite full of people so we decided to go the week after the festival to avoid huge crowds.  Thurs. was warm and sunny.  Today(suppose to be like yesterday) was very cool and cloudy.  We decided to go anyway. There were no crowds.  We took lots of pictures.  Today I'm showing the lavender photos. Tomorrow, I'll show you some pictures of the amazing and beautiful Dungeness Spit.





This is the first lavender farm in Sequim.



Purple Haze also has a pretty country garden.
 This was another farm.  I wonder what the honey tastes like when the bees get the pollen from lavender?



 This is the front porch of the Port Williams Lavender Farm.



 This is the way they distill  lavender essential oil.




Thanks for taking a look! I hope you enjoyed seeing the beautiful lavender.  As you can imagine, the smell was wonderful!!!

  4. Absolutely gorgeous! I bet the smell in the air is incredible! I have a very small patch of lavender in my front garden. Hopefully one day it will reach those beautiful epic proportions!

  7. OK that does it! Next Spring I am planting Lavender. I had some in my flower bed at one time but it absolutely took over. I will find a better spot for it and let it grow, grow....GROW!
