Splash of Color

When you come to visit our Lavender farm, you not only see fields of Lavender, you may also see a “splash of color” in our Wildflower section, from a spectacular array of Zinnias and Marigolds. These lovely flowers will bloom throughout the fall, along with the English Lavender on its 2nd bloom. The wildflower section has a little path that meanders around, with benches to sit, watch the birds, and inhale the lovely aromas. We invite folks to take a few moments to lighten their minds of all the busyness, and take a few moments to relax. Come into the garden, sit a spill, and enjoy the cooler breeze of fall, and don’t forget your camera 🙂

The Lupine is quickly going to seed, so I’ve started cutting out the seed pods, and triming the plants. Now I’ll need to fill in with other flowers that will bloom through the hotter days of summer 🙂 Today I worked with my “sister”, for a few hours, early in the morning, weeded out a section of wild flowers. Then we prep-ed the soil, and planted  Zinnias, Marigold, and white Nicotiana. These lovely flowers will bloom for us by the end of June and into July, and on through the hot month of August. There is nothing more calming, and serene than walking along the path in a wild flowers garden 🙂
