Making Lavender Wreaths

Diane (aka 'The Lavender Lady') has started making fresh Lavender wreaths with our Angustifolia, “English” Lavender. These lovely petite wreaths measure 6″ across, and are extremely fragrant and beautiful, and so much fun to make. They are made with fresh lavender, wrapped onto a wreath form with thin “purple” wire. These are similar to the wreaths that we will be making in the ‘hands on’, wreath class, at our Lavender Daze Festival in two weeks, July 11th & 12th. Click here to pre-register for the wreath classes as they will fill up. Quoting Diane: "I love working with these calming, fragrant flowers" :)

Now U-PICKing fresh Lavender!

We had our 1st U-PICK of Fresh Lavender yesterday on the farm. And so it begins! It will just get better everyday from now until frost. Come pick a bouquet and chill at one of the most beautiful places in Hood River. There is a reason why we are an Oregon Tourist Attraction!!!

June means BLOOM

As I look over the rows of lavender I gaze with amazement on the amount of growth that each day brings. It appears as if the lavender is growing more than an inch a day! Color is everywhere, it makes me smile to see so much vivid life all around me. Gotta love this plant!

We have some great Specials going on this month:
For Father's day we have our "Old English Lavender Shave Tonic" on special all month. This All Natural Tonic is made from some of the most healing hydrosols, tinctures and healing essential oils. Oh, and it smells wonderful too!

Also great deals on our famous "Old English Foaming Lavender Hand Wash", one of our top sellers. Our "Hood River Spice Blend" for the Chef or the casual cook that wants to enticingly enhance their repertoire.

See all our Monthly Specials here!

June-Lavender, Lupins, Poppies and more...

Summer is on! Its looking like the first of the lavender blooms will be around June 12th or so. Some of the earliest, and the prettiest aromas, are starting to show color, so it won't be long.

Lupins and Poppies are stunning at the time of this post! Huge, like 4' Lupins, massive and also delicate Poppies, as well as about 50 other wildflowers are so inviting to walk through and admire. Diane created a cute little wondering path through the wildflowers with sitting benches, so please enjoy if you come to visit.

We have some brand new Monthly Specials including something natural and useful for all the Father's out there: Old English Lavender Woods Shave Tonic.Soothing, healing and smells so wonderful. If the male in your social ring is a chef, then he will love Hood River Spice Blend. Also a spotlight on our Vegan Foaming Hand Wash and all of the above at a reduced price. Check them out here.
