Over the weekend we were lucky enough to travel through Yamhill County to several farms and to the Yamhill County Lavender Festival. We did do a little wine tasting along the way.

As we traveled we could smell the scent of lavender in the air. Each of the farms as well as the festival had venders with their lavender products. Everything from lavender beer to lavender ice cream. Yes, there were lavender hand lotions and soaps. If you wanted plants there were many.

There were demonstrations for making lavender oil, cooking classes and wreath making. Even the children had activities to embrace. For those who wanted to take a break… There was live music and food. Then you could stroll through the painting from the local artists who were showing their wears. 

We were able to have fun with old friends, family and meet new friends. What a great weekend.
