Spring blooms on the fruit trees around our lavender farm were at their peak for our “soft” opening this Blossom Festival Weekend! Here we go again for another glorious season!!
Many repeat customers, and also new customers traveled out to visit our lavender farm. We had lots of lavender starter plants available for purchasing, and our Retail Cottage was stocked with our organic lavender essential oil and our bath/ body products. We gave out over 300 samples of our Lavender Tea!
Sadie, our greeter, was happy to start our season and to see all the customers arriving again! She found a quite spot under the plant tables. Everybody loves our Sadie girl!
She was loving all the attention from these sweet girls!!
It was a great weekend, with sunshine, a few clouds, but no rain! Everyone enjoyed being out in the country for a stroll in the garden, and more than one family had a picnic together.
We have a few lovely flowers blooming, around our farm daffodils, Ornamental Flowering Cherry, lavender Azalea, and Red Flowering Currant, Candy Tuff, and my favorite Forget-me-nots.
Our English Lavender won’t start blooming until the first of June, and the Lavandin blooms in July. Customers that visited enjoyed strolling around looking at our neatly groomed lavender plants. This Lavandin pictured with the rake on top is “Super”. It’s one of my favorite Lavandin, with a Woodsy-Floral-Citrus Aroma
When it blooms, it’s long stem, spike flowers will be almost 4 feet tall! It’s a long stem Lavandin, x-intermedia, a hybrid.
I can’t wait to enjoy our lovely lavender again this season, and I know we have tons of customers that are looking forward to it also On Saturday several customers didn’t want to leave when 5:00 rolled around……and I can’t blame them. The wind died down, Mt. Hood popped out from behind the clouds and it was extremely gorgeous and picture perfect!!
We thank everyone for coming out this Blossom Festival weekend. We are truly thankful for the beauty around us, and wonderful folks like you to share it with. Cheers to the start of our season at our lavender farm!! :)
We will open again May 1st, 7 days a week, Mon-Sat. 10-5pm, Sunday 11-5pm. Come visit us!
