Jardin du Soleil

Next weekend, July 17-19, is Sequim’s annual Lavender Weekend, an event celebrating all things lavender. As with any crop, timing can be tricky. But this year the lavender fields got the memo and are already showing off blooms. This is a view taken recently at Jardin du Soleil.

Olympic Lavender

The festival features tours of our many lavender farms, a street fair, music performances, and a variety of other community events. Visitors can find an array of lavender in shades from deep purple to pink and white with varieties grown for essential oils, cooking, dried foliage, and classically beautiful landscaping. Most farms sell lavender plants, dried and fresh bouquets, and lavender infused products from soaps and lotions to spices. The view above is Olympic Lavender Farm.
