After a day of off-and-on rain Friday, Saturday’s Lavender Farm Faire enjoyed a respite. We checked out Sunshine Herb & Lavender Farm. Above is a view of one of their garden areas. Sunshine is where we tasted our first lavender latte and remembered it as the best ever. After yesterday’s resampling it continues to hold the honors.
Like most of our lavender farms, Sunshine has its own line of lavender products including scented lotions and lavender-infused culinary products (yes, I came home with some!). The farm cultivates some 65 different types of lavender on 10 acres and sells plants. Its farm store is open year round.
It’s July — almost time to celebrate all things purple in the Sequim Valley. Our annual Lavender Festival is July 20-22.
This field at Port Williams Lavender Farm is showing nice color. Other varieties are still waking up nearby but it looks like there will be plenty of blooms this year.
The lavender bloom was late this year because of our long chilly spring. The blooms at Graysmarsh Farm are making up for lost time. The Farm sells u-pick lavender and several kinds of berries. I’ll post more about their berries soon.
Jardin du Soleil Lavender Farm. I’ll post two more pictures from here tomorrow and the next day. What a peaceful place to explore…the scent of lavender in the air and the humming of bees as you walk around is a great combination.
This is Olympic Lavender Farm, another farm on the tour for the Lavender Festival.
