Barefoot in Lavender

What could be better than running barefoot in lavender fields? Isn't it wonderful how children so easily shed their shoes and inhibitions. Rosebud delighted in running up and down the rows of lavender. I had wanted to visit the lavender farms in Sequim, Wa. since I had heard about them. Sometimes what you expect is even better than imagined and that was the case this day. We missed the festival but enjoyed a quiet morning in the fields, our children carried baskets which they filled with lavender stems. Ferdie, our great dane, lazed under a willow tree while Sabrina and I shared a cup of lavender ice cream. Perfect HoneyPond! Thanks to the tutorial at the Dear Little Red House I learned to make a mosiac. WooHoo!

  4. Very sweet and nice job on your mosaic!

  5. I've heard that the lavender fields in Sequim are what inspired some of the lavender farms in Victoria. We have similar growing conditions. Isn't it wonderful to walk into the field and take a deep breath?
