Lavender Farms Yard Art!

I’m way behind on showing you some of God’s wonders I’ve seen around the Pacific Northwest. I’ll be catching up soon but today I’m joining Mary again at The Work of the Poet for Yard Art on Thursday. All of these were taken at the Lavender Festival in Sequim at the various lavender farms that were open to the public. I guess technically I’d have to call this “Farm Art”.

 

 

 

 

Old farm equipment was used a lot for added visual interest on the farms.

Tonight the last of our Southern California visitors fly in for an extended weekend. Tomorrow the ladies are going to a lavender farm north of us. The guys might take in some canoeing on Lake Washington. Tomorrow night we have reservations for 16 at Olive You to celebrate my sister’s birthday. The fun times just keep rolling along here. Hope all is well with all of you.

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. Mmm – I’m imagining the sweet aroma! Such a pretty colour.

    I’ve heard so much about Olive Gardens but have never been there. I’ll have to put it on the list for our next trip to the mainland.

    Hope you have a wonderful family celebration Ellen!

  2. I was left gasping and sighing by turns as I visited this lovely place through your eyes. I will be in the Portland area next week. I wonder if the lavender is still blooming up there.

  3. Ellen,

    I came back to your post, and just now noticed that lavender shoe – what a hoot! πŸ™‚

    Re: pictures in latest magazine – I wish we live close enough, I would pay for to take pictures of my quilt. I love seeing the world though your camera lens!

    Blessings.

  4. Gorgeous colour and I can only imagine the scent! Lots of creativity in the art. What fun to “bumber” around places like this.

  5. Hello Ellen B!!!

    It has been awhile since I’ve checked in and I’m ever so sorry. The Lavender Farms look so beautiful there that it makes me wonder if its true what they say about lavender. I thought it only grew in hot arid climates, but then it grows profusely in England, doesn’t it? It matters not…your pictures are so bright and vivid.

    I hope you’re doing well,

    xoxo cori g.

  8. Gorgeous…I just discovered my flower bed secret….no matter what I was feeding my flowers they were just so so….I started giving them coffee….the liquid and the grounds and now my lavender is actually starting to look bold and bright. I’m loving the purple shoe….that’s fun. I’m sure the joy of all your company is keeping you going….and then rest will come with plenty of sweet memories
