Angel Farm

it is time to start featuring some of the places that will be on the farm tour during the Lavender Festival, July 20-22, 2007. Angel Farm is just down the road a piece. As you can see their lavender foliage is starting to grow and it won’t be long before you can see buds starting to sprout. I could tell you all the things I love about Angel Farm, but it would probably be best to read the great story Betty Oppenheimer wrote in the link above.

At my place, I already have one variety,James Compton, in bloom. If you take care and pinch the blooms back, this one will last the summer.

I will feature another farm next week.

  1. tres belle photo, elle est tres graphique. et puis la lavande c’est mon enfance, on en trouve des champs entier en Dordogne.


    very beautiful photograph, it is very graphic. and then the lavender it is my childhood, one finds fields entirety in the Dordogne of them.

  2. Norma, I just zipped back to tell you that I recently read The Worst Hard Time by Tim Egan. I thought of the fact that you’d grown up there. I think you might really enjoy this book, all about the dust bowl days in the Oklahoma and Texas panhandle regions.

  3. I saw Angel Farm on the computer (Google it) and realized it is a Lavender Farm. I grow lavender here at home for the bees and insects and it was badly hurt this year when it warmed up too early and then froze hard. So now I have only a little left to start over.

    I think the photograph you took is great. It certainly shows a well laid out farm practice.

  4. even the buds not sprouds yet…your photo already shows the beauty! I’ve never attend any Lavender festival,I’m not sure either if we have such one in here…I love lavender!

  5. Another wonderful picture Norma. I haven’t ever been in Sequim for the Lavender Festival, but maybe this year. I leave Alaska behind in 11 days but come back up in July to drive out with the family and our things. Looking forward to possibly meeting you. Your photos have been such a blessing.
