Lavender Fields

Just when you thought the Pacific Northwest couldn’t possibly get anymore beautiful, lavender shoots up and rolls like great purple waves across Washington fields. I am not sure why I haven’t paid any attention  in previous years, but apparently I live within a couple hours of some very stunning fields. Lacking the time to find any of them this weekend, I made a short day trip out to Lummi Island with a couple of friends and found a small farm to take a few pictures instead.

The Sequim Lavender Farm Faire runs from July 19 – 21… It’s a bit of a journey from where I live, but it may be worth it to get a few late afternoon shots of some fields later this month. Anyone out there have any favorite fields either along the I-5 corridor or on the Olympic Peninsula?

  1. I’m no photographer, but I do enjoy your photos! I think there’s a lavendar farm near Coupeville on Whidbey, and another in Ferndale, on Thornton Road. Speaking of fields of color: while driving home from Yosemite a few weeks ago, taking mostly back roads, I somewhere encountered a massive sea of sunflowers in full bloom, all turned toward the sun. I’ve never seen so many acres of yellow!
