Lavender filled Weekend.....

Here's to a new week and I hope its a good one! My weekend was lovely. A 20 minute drive from home, followed by a half hour ferry trip and then an hours drive took us to the Lavender festival in Sequim. I was mesmerised by the beauty of the lavender fields dotting the countryside. Nestled between the coast and the  foothills of the Olympic mountains, Sequim is a lovely little town that I have fallen in love with. With the clouds rolling in........the fragrance of lavender and my family beside me.......it made for a memorable weekend.  I stopped wherever I could to photograph these fragrant beauties.

Come away with me to the land of lavender fields and endless beauty.........



I love this lavender colored bike......




The colors were gorgeous..............



Endless vistas.................



The potters at the Street fair in Sequim. These were my favorite!!

 




More and more lavender...............and some came home :-)






The street fair had Lavender products galore and I picked up a few :-) The fragrance was intoxicating........absolutely heavenly....it was hard to walk away:-) So was the lavender and peach ice cream and the lavender mint tea that I happily gobbled up :-)

 



I hope you enjoyed my little tour.......see you around!

I love the bike too. I wish we had a lavender filled festival here :( Though on the bright side I have lavenders in my backyard and we love the smell when we are outside during our lazy evenings, only thing that bothers me is it attracts lot of bees.
