Spring is unfolding little by little at our Lavender farm, so it’s time to delve into some spring clean-up!! This is one of my favorite places to be early in the year, working on the farm!! Fresh air, sunshine and a little rain, are all so invigorating to my soul!
Today I’m pruning our “Kniphofia”, or commonly known as Red Hot Poker plants. While another gal weeds around 100’s of new baby lavender plants that were planted early summer last year. Get those weeds “Out” while the roots are still tiny and the soil is soft!! Thank you!!
All 4000 lavender plants just got haircuts, in prep for this seasons blooms. The lovely lavender aroma wafts through the air surrounding us as we work 🙂 I just love to gently rub my hands across the nicely pruned lavender and inhale that fresh healing aroma. The lavender looks so beautiful and it’s not even in bloom!! We’ll have to wait until June to see blooms on these Angustifolia “English” lavender, and I Can’t Wait!!!! 🙂
Imagine yourself sitting in that chair, breathing in the calming, healing lavender aroma!! So peaceful and surreal 🙂 I love the stunning splash of color from the Kniphofia, Shasta Daisy’s and other Wildflowers!! (I took these photos the beginning of June) Not too early for our beneficial critters, this is one very happy little “Lady In Red”!! What a blessed life she has living on an organic lavender farm 🙂
We had a beautiful rainbow as we were just finishing off the day! Our senses were “delighted” by the freshly pruned lavender aroma, the sweet chirp of the Robin, and croaking tree frogs! It brought a smile to my heart!! 🙂
These are some of the first Spring flowers in our wildflower garden, Iceland Poppies, and Lupine. I can’t wait to see their glorious blooms in May!! 🙂
Be sure to visit us April 17th & 18th for our soft opening, as we celebrate “Hood River Valley’s Blossom Time Weekend” in our beautiful Valley! Your senses will be delighted by the serene peace that fills our Organic Lavender Farm!!
Love, Lavender Lady
