Hello Lavender Loving Friends,
All Good Things Must Come To An End - I don't like that saying at all. But, it does remind us to be present and appreciative of the things that bring us joy because they won't last forever.
Sadly, the blooms have faded. Even though the various shades of purple are gone, the scent of lavender is still strong. Did you know that by gentle squeezing your lavender plant you release that wonderful aroma produced by the essential oil in the plant?
The bees are still working hard and enjoying the blooms that are left. By the way, we still have a small supply of honey from the first harvest but this supply won't last long. The next harvest will most likely not happen until the Fall.
I had so much fun trying to get pictures of the bees this morning. It's ridiculous the amount of pictures I took only to get a few good shots.
I'm grateful the deer have not discovered the Stargazer Lilly yet. It's been a few years since I've seen this many blooming and they looked so beautiful during last night's golden hour. I'm thrilled to see some Echinacea too, although most are just stalks *sigh*. Oh and I made a new friend today (watch video below).
We've added a couple of new products to the shop that we're super excited about!! First, for all you foodies out there, you're going to LOVE these... Lavender Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Lavender Balsamic Vinegar and Herbs de Provence Dipping Blend!! You're Welcome!! I can't get enough of these!!
This weekend we're introducing our new ice cream flavor... drum roll please... Lavender Chocolate Chip!! The freezer is stocked with Lavender, Lavender Raspberry and Lavender Chocolate Chip (Angels Singing). Thank You to our good friends, Brooks & Candace of Bank Street Creamery.
The Writing Workshop which was scheduled for today was moved to Monday, August 2 due to the weather forecast.
I'm thrilled to be welcoming back our dear friends Kimberly Glaskey and Vibha Rana for their wellness events. Kimberly will be here on September 7 offering Reiki. Vibha will be here on September 15 offering Reflexology. Mark you calendars now and be on the lookout for ticket information which will be added to the Event Page on our website soon.
I've received several inquiries about the Yoga & Dinner Event with Terri Rozyla. We are still working out some logistics and hope to have tickets for this event available soon. However, the date will most likely be moved to October.
As a reminder, Face Masks, covering nose and mouth, are still REQUIRED in the shop regardless of vaccination status. Face Masks may be removed while outside. Please stay home if you’re not feeling well. We reserve the right to limit the number of visitors on the property and in the Shop at any given time to ensure everyone’s safety.
We truly appreciate your continued support and we look forward to seeing you soon.
With Love and Gratitude,
Monica & Jim
