Sequim Lavender Festival, Sequim, Washington
18th thru 20th July, 2014
“Lavender Capital of the Nation”
Jardin du Soleil Lavender Farm
Purple Haze Lavender Farm
It’s only fitting with a name like “Purple Haze” that the address be “Bell Bottom Lane.”
Lavender Oil Extractor
Purple Haze, all in my brain,
Lately things they don’t seem the same,
Actin’ funny, but I don’t know why
‘scuse me while I kiss the sky
Washington Lavender Farm and Bed and Breakfast
Lavender hung upside down to dry…same technique works in RV shower stall. 😉
Lavender comes in many different varieties, some even pink.
Purple Haze, all around,
Don’t know if I’m comin’ up or down
Am I happy or in misery?
Whatever it is, that flower put a spell on me.
Even purple bees!
Lavender honey was on my shopping list. So yummy!
Purple Haze, all in my eyes,
Don’t know if it’s day or night,
You’ve got me blowin’, blowin’ my mind
Is it tomorrow or just the end of time?
These men harvested this field at amazing speed! Rain was in the forecast…
Harvest is done with a small hand sickle.
Ahh, yea-yeah, purple haze
Oh, no, oh, Oh, help me
Tell me, tell me, purple haze
I can’t go on like this
You’re makin’ me blow my mind
Purple haze, n-no, nooo
There’s a horse up there peeking at me…can you see him?
Sequim Lavender Festival Street Fair
My Lavender Margarita that I had been waiting all week to try…
The Purple Hat ladies enjoy the live music
Even Walmart gets in on the action with their purple displays
A special thanks to Mr. Jimi Hendrix, who provided the perfect soundtrack that played on a continuous loop in my head for the entire festival. “Purple Haze,” 1967
