I did not realize how many different varities of lavendar there are. We took a lavender wand making class. We decided we were better knitters. Not all of us are meant to be lavender wand makers. The class is usually a half hour. We were there for an hour and a half.
They sold, of course, lavender. But they also are an herb farm. I came away with tarragon, rosemary, roe, thai basil, spicey oregano, thyme lime, and a few others. Margaret and I picked up a curry we were all excited about-- only to read in the car that you shouldn't cook with it.
Some of the spoils: lavender honey, a herbal flea collar for the puppy, a computer wrist pad with soothing lavender, a neck rap, multiple herb mixes. I also picked up a grab bag that had candles, soap and lavender sachet. The dreaded lavender wand is the white object with the bow.
I had a wonderful time and look forward to it's return next year.
P.S. The pitcher on the right hand side is full of marigold infused water. A co-worker suggested this as a non herbicidal remedy for bugs in the garden. She said it was always succesful for her dad. I will let you know.
