Ants go marching

I bet locals thought I’d post some kind of lavender picture today in honor of the start of the Lavender Festival.   I had intended to go take one yesterday afternoon, but it turned into one of those days where just when you put out one fire, another pops up and I didn’t get to. 

This photo above I took the same night I took the light shot from yesterday.  This is an ant hill at Dungeness Rec area that we’ve been observing for a couple of years now and making sure while in that area that we step over the ones that are busily traveling across the trail.

Locals, are you going to the Lavender Festival?  The free Art Tour?

Article about the festival and how it’s two festivals this year.

  1. If I were there, I’d make my way to the farms. It is always a special time. I hope my guests get a chance to visit. I appreciate the fact you link both venues, Shanon. The art tour…for sure…and the music is always fun.

  2. We are in town visiting family and plan to go to the festival. I’m not sure what we’ll do, but I hope the weather is nice no matter what. 🙂

  3. I was reading the paper this morning about all that is going on for the weekend and there definitely isn’t a shortage of activities! I bet if you were here lavenderlady you’d be headed for the quilt show too.
    Anna, enjoy! The weather looks iffy, but maybe it will surprise us.
    I really do believe in lavender’s calming abilities. I keep a bag handy for moments of high stress and a couple sniffs of it relaxes me. I also keep wands (that lavenderlady taught me how to make) in the bedroom by our bed for peaceful sleeping.
    We have lavender soap, lavender shampoo. I could keep going but I’d sound like Bubba from Forrest Gump when he’s talking about shrimp lol.

  4. Shannon, I love the lavender! We have lined both sides of our driveway with lavender..the only time I gripe about it is when I have to trim it down for the winter. Too much bending over! Yes, I love the soaps, the lotions…I am hooked on a great Dry Skin Cream that Carmen at Sunshine on 101 makes. We will take a drive tomorrow and check things out!

  5. Pat, have a good time. I haven’t gone to Carrie Blake yet, but might check it out tomorrow.
    Randy, they sure are. I know I’m a goofball, but I like observing them.
