Did you all have a good weekend?
We sure did.
We went to a local Lavender Farm and had ourselves a beautiful relaxing day.
Have you ever been to a lavender farm before?
The smell when you arrive is oh so heavenly.
This farm is own by a family here who host the lavender festival. Their property is so lovely every where you look.
My boy's enjoyed swinging on some swings next to a creek full of ducks.
In the past years that I have gone to a lavender festival, I always cut me a big bouquet of lavender to take home. But since I now have my own lavender bush at home I decided not to.
This grapevine trellis was really neat to walk under.
The Farmhouse on the property was built 101 years ago. It is a sears home ordered from a Sears and Roebuck catalog and shipped and built on site. Isn't it charming?
This is actually the back of the home.
This Silo was built for 3 farmers as a co-op to store their grain, today it is used to dry lavender bouquets.
The Silo has a beautiful rose garden next to it.
The festival had a few fun vendors, Lavender doughnuts, tea, lemonade and ice cream, You could enjoy lunch under the orchard trees, make lavender wreaths, listen to live music, or just relax in a lavender lawn chair in the shade.
Exploring the farm we also found chickens, sheep and old cars.
I thoroughly enjoyed myself, and can't wait to go again next year.
Thanks for stopping by,
