Last year, we visited Sequim for the lavender festival, on the Penninsula of Washington state. It was a delightful collection of lavender farms and ranches, including special wines and bed and breakfast deals, featuring anything and everything lavender. There was even lavender flavored chocolate!
Then I decided to plant some lavender in our back yard and it rooted and took well, so now this year, we have a lavender festival in our own back yard. The plants are all flowering and are so beautiful in their deep purple shade, tiny flowers and amazing fragrance. I brought much of it inside to fill the house with aroma!
