More Vacation--Purple Haze in Sequim

When we first pulled in the back of that truck was full of lavender. That guy is FAST. Purple Haze is our first stop for lavender. The first farm we ever visited while in Dungeness, the first place where we fell in love with all things lavender. Apparently we are not alone.
Washington State has experienced one of the coldest, wettest spring and early summers that I can remember. Sequim is in the "Rain Shadow" of western Washington, meaning that they do not get much rain. Even so, this year it was gloomy and cold. The fields are still stunning but usually I catch the scent of Lavender well before I can see the fields. Not so this year. I did not notice the scent until I went into the gift shop.
Purple Haze gardens. Below is Jason, just back from saying hello to the Peacocks.


  1. Oh man, I used to live in Port Angeles, this blog, and its many pictures makes me miss it, I should go visit. :) I hope its not weird to say, but Jason is adorable! :)

  2. Ha! Not weird Pal! His only comment was a big grin and wondering if you left your number. Hope you get to see home soon.

  4. Oh my goodness I could stare at those fields for a long time. What a beautiful site.

  5. I don't want to scare Jason, but if you darken his hair, add glasses and logging clothes, than you have the man I fell in love with. Jason isn't as serious as Ray so he grins more often.

  6. :) he is totally adorable. :) you should totally give him my number and have him text me sometime :) 425-308-1821
