Sequim Lavender Festival 2015

They call it Lavender Capital of North America!


These are some of my pictures from the Lavender Farm Tour which was a part of  the 19th  Sequim Lavender Festival.
Location: Washington state, Olympic Peninsula, Sequim-Dungeness Valley.
We visited Blackberry Forest Farm, Purple Haze Lavender Farm, Graysmarsh Farm, Creek Side Lavender Farm,
Jardin du Soleil Farm, Olympic Lavender Heritage Farm, Oliver's Lavender Farm, Fat Cat Garden and Gifts.
We plan to visit other farms next year. One day is not enough!
The farm tour is only one part of the Festival.
If you are interested in a street fair, live music and other activities, there were plenty of them, too,
and you can include Lavender Festival-2016 in your planner (July 15-17, 2016).


It was a hot, bright day, and all types of seats prepared for guests, looked very attractive.
Relax and enjoy...


You could cut your own lavender bouquet:





Purple Haze Lavender Farm




It was not just the lavender itself  that made visiting the farms charming.
The area is beautiful, and the scenery is fantastic.





We spent a good amount of time at Graysmarsh Farm.
Besides lavender, onions and many types of berries (raspberry, strawberry, wild blackberry, loganberry, blueberry, etc.) are grown there.
Here, you have a wonderful opportunity to pick your own berries!








We bought and sauteed some onions. Mmmmm.... Delicious!



Look at these berries! Thank you, Pete, for allowing me to take these pictures!
The berries caught my attention first, but then, look at Pete's hat!
He bought it on Kauai and decorated it himself with hens and chickens.
It's unique and brings a smile to everyone's face.


Thanks again to you and your lovely wife. It was a pleasure to chat with you.





'Grosso' - is a hybrid of English lavender which is cold hardy and
Portuguese lavender which is heat tolerant.






















Jardin du Soleil Farm




You have a lot of opportunities to acquire all types of lavender products from farm stores
or vendors participating in the Festival.



Olympic Lavender Heritage Farm




If you love the countryside, vintage and a peaceful atmosphere, the Sequim Dungeness Valley
is a perfect place to visit.
I have a great appreciation for the people who work here and keep  history alive.


Creek Side Lavender Farm




Have you ever seen a more attractive restroom?
You are waited here with love!





I hope you enjoyed the tour and put these farms on your list to visit.
There were two farms with beautiful perennial gardens that I plan to show in a separate post.
