Love lavender as much as I do and live in (or are visiting) the Pacific NW?
Well then I heartily recommend some quality time at a lavender farm:)
See here for the Lavender Festival soon to happen in Sequim, Washington
here for one taking place this weekend in Washington's southern neighbor, Oregon
(Gorge and western Oregon).
BTW---many farms offer open hours outside the festival dates;
check the sites above for further details (and more info on lavender).
If anyone is aware of a lavender festival in the PNW or outside this region, please feel free to leave the information in the comments area:)
Meanwhile at my little lavender 'farm', my plants are happily blooming and I am thinking tomorrow, when it is a bit cooler, might be a good day to harvest them. I am also considering planting new ones in the second raised bed (the first one is a wildflower-style garden).
Blessings this eve,
