Oh the Sweet Smell…

…of Lavender

Lavender and Clement Robinson
(Handefull of Pleasant Delites, 1584)

Lavender is for lovers true,

Which evermore be faine;

Desiring always for to have

Some pleasure for their paine:

And when that they obtained have

The love that they require,

Then have they all their perfect joie,

And quenched is the fire.

Next weekend is the Lavender Festival in Sequim on the Kitsap Penninsula. I’m thinking about going and checking out the fields early on Friday with hopes of taking our summer visitors there the week after the festival. I’ve never been and would like to know what to expect before I haul a car full of visitors over there. I’d also like to inquire about how long the fields are full before they are cut back.

Photobucket replaced all my photos with ugly black and grey boxes and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

  1. I love lavender! I planted some in our yard but it died out, much to my dismay. Seeing fields of it would be awesome!

  2. My sister, Mary, who lives in Portland, OR, has been to that Lavender Festival, Ellen, and she raved about it. I’ll be interested in what you have to say about it!
