Below is how some of the rows look up close and personal! Each row is labeled for its variety - either French or English - whether it can be used for culinary purpose or sachet, etc.
Below are the owners two horses.
Here is where the owners relax after a hard day on the Lavender Farm! Can you just imagine yourself sitting there with a cup of lavender lemonade, the heady scent of lavender filling the air and the sound of the bees gathering pollen for lavender honey?
Well look who it is! Ms. Terri taking a rest amongst the lavender! We were so surprised to see her there! My but she does get around....Race for the Cure, working on her kaliedescope quilt and picking lavender from one side of the country to the other!!
Here and there you find California Poppies! This was an entire bed right in the middle of the picking fields!
As we walked out to the field, we saw a gentleman working in this lovely vegetable garden. We complimented his work, then he came out and introduced himself as Jean-Paul! We had a nice chat with him and he gave us a few tips about growing in this climate! Below is another view of the garden, complete with grape vines and day lillies - Stella D'oro! I asked Jean-Paul which lavender would be best suited for my uses - I will be planting English Lavender - Sachet next spring. It's useful for both sachet and culinary.
I bought this lovely bundle of lavender sachets in the boutique along with The Lavender Cookbook and some culinary lavender.
Mr. Squash has just come in to inform me it's time to "mark" the new driveway! More on that later....
