My friend and I recently went to the Lavender Festival in Sonoma
The entrance fee was a mere $5 dollars and well worth it. Vendors were set up all around a lavender field full of the Grosso and Provence varieties.
I sound like I know what I’m talking about but that’s only because they also had on-going seminars about lavender and what was growing in that particular field.
Both my friend and I were rather excited and frolicked through the place gaily for several hours. There was food, wine, stuff to buy, wreath making, photo ops and an outdoor spa demonstrating some of the products.
In the end we came away with some pretty neat stuff. We wanted to buy the whole place, but in an attempt to be conservative ended up with a 16 oz bottle of lavender oil and a bag of edible lavender to split and from which we could make all the other products on display there ( or so we hoped in our inspired state).
Did I end up using any of my portion of lavender oil (all 8 oz of it)? That my friends is for another post. For now, just enjoy the lovely view of lavender! Get yourself to a lavender festival if you get the chance- a great way to spend a few hours ( and a few bucks)!

Gorgeous! And I am so jealous! You could make some yummy shortbread cookies with some of that lovely dried lavender.
I’ll hold some over for your visit and then you can demonstrate how that can be put into action! heh. xo.
Remind me to bring the recipe.
