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?

    Beautiful images, Jolene. That lavender looks like it’s moving in the breeze!

    1. Thank you! It probably was. We were on a small island that day, and the weather was amazing! Perfect day for photography. 🙂

    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!

    1. Oooh, I’ve really wanted to find a sunflower field, Nancy! Probably won’t be driving out that direction though. 😦

  4. My aunt’s products (soaps) are one of the hottest items each year at the lavender festival. Love the stuff!

    1. I’d like to pick up some of those items this year. It looks like I’ll be going out there next weekend!

      1. She does all of the soaps for Jardin du Soleil… I thought it was the nicest of the farms. Just got back; loved it! Ran into Oona over there. 🙂

  5. Mmmmm….. Very beautiful… .
