This place is a bit tricky to find but I promise if you are a lavender lover and are in the neighborhood it is totally worth your time to walk around, inhale the scents, and absorb the peace of the entire farm. There are multiple places to sit, strategic places next to trees where there is shade. The store is amazing and glowing with brilliantly flowering roses and lavender.
Tracy, the owner, is as kind and earthy as can be.
“There are some things, after all, that Sally Owens knows for certain: Always throw spilled salt over your left shoulder. Keep rosemary by your garden gate. Add pepper to your mashed potatoes. Plant roses and lavender, for luck. Fall in love whenever you can.”
― Alice Hoffman, Practical Magic
There are rolling fields of lavender. There is a giant garden which boasts flowers of many types, and also some very shy sunflowers! The garden has a lot of other herbs like dill and chives, so just a simple stroll through the grounds is a very aromatically pleasing experience.
Someone was very artistic in their landscaping. There is a pond full of lilies, whimsical little bridges with metal fish ornaments, and even a purple water bath. A closed gazebo/shed where you can see all of the lavender bunches drying. But my most favorite thing was the lavender labyrinth.
I visited in the evening, with overcast skies and white lace clouds hovering over the mountains in the distance across from Ebey’s Landng. I felt like I had fallen into an Ann of Green Gables book.
