LAVENDER FESTIVAL

We had a nice time at the Lavender Festival on June 13th. We walked around all the little shops and booths. Walked through the Lavender fields and had a wonderful lunch. (The Menu) I had the Grand Oaks Sausage with Sauerkraut, Mark had the Beef Brisket Sandwich and Amber had Garbanzo Burger.
 Some old rusty equipment.....
Huge agave plant....
The Lavender Fields 
They were not super dark in color.....
but boy did they smell awesome!
 There are some white lavender flowers in the front
 of this next shot. I didn't even know they existed! 
To avoid people in my shots, rooftops or roads 
I couldn't take any super long field shots! 

Later we had some Lavender Cheesecake, Lavender Ice Cream and Lavender Lemonade! All were very yummy and delicious! 


Bought myself a Lavender plant, Organic Culinary Lavender, Organic Lavender Honey and a sachet for Mark's undies drawer!!! We even got some Lavender purse size spray hand sanitizers. 

I am currently in Florida with my dad and family until July 7th! Hope all is well with everyone. Hugs to you.....

I had no idea lavender was edible myself... I do love the smell of it though & love the purple of the plant. So beautiful.
Festivals are always so fun.

So glad you're having a good time in Florida! I love those rusty equipment pics. We have a lavender farm a few hours away and I bought some lavender lotion. I love the smell. The white ones were so cool! Very lucky to have that picture.
Have a great day.
