Weekend Solstice Party

It’s all about celebrating our first English lavender in bloom!! I’ve cut several fresh bouquets of our earliest English varieties, Mt. Hood and Edgerton Blue, to use for the hands-on wand making class. These lovely ‘wands or ‘bottles’ are a Victorian sachet that are extremely fun to make, incorporating the basket weaving technique. They have been used to freshen linens and impart fragrance around the home for centuries.

We are starting to U-Pick lavender, and many customers enjoy strolling through the garden cutting from the many varieties of English lavender for a delightfully fragrant, beautiful lavender bouquet to take home. Saturday Ben Bonham was on site playing his folk, blues and garden music to liven up our party atmosphere. He’s such great fun!!

Have a wonderful weekend Father’s, and celebrate your family with us in the lavender fields, with a sample of our most famous ‘Lavender Ginger Apple Cider’, and Lavender Shortbread!!

A few varieties of our Angustifolia, “English” Lavender, have just started to bloom!  We’ve been anticipating this day for awhile!!  We get excited about the start of our U-pick season at our Lavender Farm!! 🙂 It’s beautiful watching  the changes, each day, as these lovely flowers start their extremely fast growth, preparing for bloom time. The English is the first variety to bloom, and the French blooms in July.  We hope you will plan a trip out to cut your own Upick Lavender bouquet soon.

This weekend is Father’s day, and we are serving up some iced mint tea, lavender shortbread and handmade lavender truffles in honor of “Dad”.

We are planning for our 5th Anniversary of Lavender DAZE Festival next month, July 11 & 12th.

Well…I’m off to dead-head Lupine and play in the Wildflower Garden! 🙂
