Have a seat and relax in the field of lavender. Yesterday, we attended the Finger Lakes Lavender Festival in Skaneateles, NY which had been on my list for over five years.
Of course I bought lavender. Some for culinary purposes and some to make sachets for my drawers. You can see the difference between the two varieties.
The lavender market had a nice selection, and I knew I wanted to try the honey, fudge sauce, dryer bags, sachets and lavender oil. Joe will probably want to swat me for telling you, but he is in the tub soaking in lavender Epsom salts that I mixed with baking soda. It's good for drawing out toxins, lowers stress related hormones and balances pH levels. I'm next :-)
The Drying Barn
I gave my mom the pretty yellow flower, and ate the lavender cookie all by myself.
What a charming sign. It motivated Mr. Mountain Breaths to make a similar sign at our camp.
I wonder if she catches any butterflies :-)
The gardens were in full bloom and I couldn't resist.
Thank you for stopping by!
