What’s happening in the lavender fields?

Here’s a look at the current status of our lavender fields. It looks like we will have plenty ready early to make oils and lots of beautiful lavender left to pick fresh at the lavender festival, July 9 and 10, right here at Westwind! Our field garden will bloom early with the moonshine achillea, but we should get some nice dried stems out of it for bouquets. We are already attracting bees to our clover and irises, and it looks like the elk have been kind to the lavender and are focused on the grasses in our lower pastures.
