Beautiful Lavender!

I celebrated my birthday (yes, I'm 39....again) with my daughter Jenna at the beautiful lavender farms in Sequim, Wa.  The colors were amazing...such inspiration! Upon arriving at Purple Haze, we headed straight for the delicious lavender ice cream.  From there, we drove through the valley to Port Williams Lavender where Michael explained the unique characteristics of their many varieties.

I love this sign....Leave a path in the garden so angels can walk through

the gorgeous bouquets I picked!

Finally, summer has arrived here in the Pacific Northwest!  After a very long cold, wet spring, I woke up today and looked out at crystal clear, brilliant, not a cloud in the blue sky.  Today is going to break records, highs in the 90s are predicted in Seattle, and here on Hood Canal with the ever present north wind blowing, it should be in the 70s.  Sunny days as far as the weatherman can see!
