Purple Watch Update & Latest News - July 15, 2021


Hello Dear Lavender Loving Friends,

Will we ever see the sun again? Sadly, the recent heavy downpours, heat and high humidity have taken a toll on our plants. Our English Lavenders are done. Our French Lavenders still have some blooms and our bees are loving them. This will most likely be the last weekend for the lavender. However, don’t let that discourage you from visiting. We still have plenty to offer assuming you’re looking to escape to a peaceful oasis.


I’m happy to announce that our honey is bottled and ready to be enjoyed. Thank you to our amazing beekeepers, Mim and Tim Dunne of Woodsedge Tree Farm for taking such good care of the bees and their hives. We're so grateful for their hard work and dedication.

If you haven't already, you must come try our deeelicious Lavender Chocolate Cupcakes, Lavender Lemon Cupcakes and Lavender Butter Cookies made by our dear friend Anita The Cupcake Lady. These yummies always sell out so hurry in.

You'll also find our famous Lavender Raspberry Ice Cream and Lavender Honey Ice Cream made exclusively for us by our good friends, Brooks & Candace of Bank Street Creamery.

And let's not forget the decadent chocolates made by our beautiful friends at The Chocolate Shoppe. They've masterfully married their chocolate with our lavender extract and lavender sugar to create our Lavender Dark Chocolate Bars, Lavender White Chocolate Bars and Lavender Chocolate Mousse, yes you read that correctly... Lavender Chocolate Mousse. These specialty chocolates can only be found in our Shop.

While we're on the subject of lavender yummies, have you tried a Lavender Lemonade yet? Or even better, how about a Lavender Cocktail? We have five different flavors of Lavender Simple Syrup including Lavender, Lavender Raspberry, Lavender Pear, Lavender Vanilla and Lavender Orange Lemon. Each one comes with a recipe card to help you create the perfect lavender beverage or dessert.

Soon we'll be announcing the addition of some new culinary lavender products to inspire your inner foodie.
