We had our annual Open House at our UPick Lavender farm this Thanksgiving weekend. Many customers came out to shop, sample Lavender/mint Shortbread, sip on Hot Lavender Mulled Cider, and enjoy a beautiful fall day. We also had Cathedral Ridge Winery do wine tasting for our weekend event. Between times that I was waiting on customers,  I made a few natural Holiday Wreaths with plants in my garden. I used our Red Twig Dogwood bush for the base wreath form. Then I added greenery from the Fir tree, red/orange Rose-hips, and snow-berries. I added some dried Cascade Hops from around our cottage patio, and a few stems from the “Fred Boutin” lavender plants. Fred Boutin is a Lavandin, Hybrid Lavender, and has beautiful frosted foliage that I like a lot. When I finish these wreaths I plan to give one to my daughter, to decorate her door. The other I will give to one of our awesome workers, that helps me maintain the weed control around our Lavender Farms. Today she has spent most of the day clearing out the dried flowers and shrubs from our “Wildflower” section. I appreciate her helpfulness more the she can imagine!!!!!

At this Thanksgiving Holiday,  I pause to take time to be thankful for the people in our lives, our family, friends, employees, and customers, each one makes our life richer, and our business a success. We appreciate your support throughout the year, weather it’s dropping by our UPick farm, or shopping on our website!! Your kind words in testimonies and feed back, are all appreciated! We hope you are all enjoying a relaxed Holiday with those special people you love.  Be blessed, be happy.
