Weekend Solstice Party

Share Button

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!!

Not Quite Spring Yet…

Irene, the snow-gal

A few days of 58’ temps, and it feels like spring. We’ve even started pruning the Lavender and other perennials at our farm. But, we got up today to another winter blast, of 3 ½” of snow! It’s beautiful as I look out at the fluffy white blanket covering the Lavender fields, and watch the sunrise. This is not uncommon for us at the time of year, since our U-Pick farm is 1700’ elevation. I will take today off, and continue our spring clean-up another day. I’m going outside to play in the snow, and build a snowman or “snow-gal, Irene”.  Spring’s on its way…for real!!!
