Every year  on the third weekend of July thousands of people converge in the small city of Sequim, Washington for the annual Lavender Festival.  It is harvest time for lavender and it is in full blossom…the fields are absolutely gorgeous!   It is a busy weekend with festivities both in downtown Sequim and at the many lavender farms.

Sequim is located in the Olympic rain shadow making it the perfect place to grow lavender.   The first lavender was planted in Sequim approximately 20 years ago and there are now dozens of lavender farms across the Sequim-Dungeness Valley.  Sequim has actually been nicknamed the “Lavender Capital of North America”!   I’ve included a link to a great article if you would like to learn more about Sequim lavender. read more….
