Enchanting Autumn & Whiffs Of Lovely Lavender

Share Button

It feels & looks like fall with the cool breezes, and fresh blanket of snow on Mt. Hood. This is the time that Anjou Pears are picked in our valley, and in the orchards around our lavender farm. Whiffs of lavender still linger around our garden from the Lavandin, that is still on the plants, and the English lavender that’s going into bloom for the second time. We are still doing U-Pick lavender bouquets from several varieties, and will until the frost comes to visit.  🙂  We celebrate the beauty and fragrance of this lovely flower, Lavender. We will have our retail cottage stocked with our 2011 Best of Oregon Essential Oils and our new 2011 Flight of Lavender pack! Stop by and inhale their lovely, calming, soothing and healing aroma. Shop for holiday gifts, and stock up on our lavender jellies, and culinary lavender for your holiday parties. We will have samples of our Lavender Mint Shortbread, and Hot Lavender Apple Cider. We celebrate the seasons in our garden, as we do in our lives, and are blessed with the bounty of our harvest!

It’s September, and it’s starting to feel like fall is just around the corner. I don’t think I’m ready for summer to end, so let’s hope for a few more beautiful sunny days. The orchards around the valley are picking Bartlett pears, just in time for this weekends “Pear Celebration“! If you’re out for a drive, be sure to follow the “Fruit Loop” up through our gorgeous valley, and take in some serene sites. We will have samples of our Famous Gorge Wind Tea, and Lavender Mint Shortbread. We have tons of jars of our yummy Lavender Cherry Pear Marmalade for sampling in our retail cottage. Also, we are having 2-for-1 U-Pick Lavender bouquets all weekend!

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!!
