Sequim’s annual Lavender Weekend begins this Friday and I looked around one of my favorite farms, Jardin du Soleil, last week. This was one of the first operations I visited before I moved to Sequim and I was taken by the beauty of the fields and the gorgeous setting. New owners took over the 10-acre farm a few years ago and the lavender looks great this year.
The fields here are beautifully laid out and the landscaping compliments it nicely. During the Lavender Weekend crafts and foods are sold at many of the lavender farms and farmers offer lavender-related demonstrations. Jardin du Soleil will demonstrate lavender distilling.
Like many other lavender growers Jardin du Soleil sells their lavender products, which are organic.
