Lavender Fields Forever

Sunday, June 21 –

We finally visited the lavender farm of Danny and Laurie Davis, Thistle Dew Farms. We missed their special event on June 6. They have everything fixed up so cute. We had a lot of fun. The girls learned how to weave a lavender wand and all the ladies got a bouquet of lavender to take home. Later Guy and Di Ann Campbell showed up, too, and we got to visit with them.
