Lavender

One of my goals for the Summer was to find a place to pick lavender. So, near Shawnee, Oklahoma I found the Country Cottage Primitive Lavender Farm .
We decided to make a stop there on our way back from our buying trip in Kansas.

If you read my post about our Kansas trip, you will know there was barely enough room left for even a little bit of lavender. We were given instructions on which stems to pick , the proper way to cut them and walking among the plants protocol. This all was not exactly how I had my pictured my peaceful picking time in my mind.
Way too many rules!

We were told that a tornado had been through and damaged some of the structures and all of the extra rain had limited their crop. I thought it all was still really pretty anyway. My Dear Hubby lasted about 45 minutes longer out there picking than I did. It was HOT!

The Diva and I decided to hang out for awhile, but all and all it was a pleasant stop and the car had a great lavender scent all the way home...

Nancy, I had the best time getting to visit with you on Friday. Thanks for doing this. Also, I think there's a lavender farm near Brenham Tx.
