Gatitude Monday

So 2 out of 3 is a huge improvement for me with regards to blogging! I am so glad I came up with my new plan. And the truth is it's been fun, in the context of my themes, to think about what I want to share with you all!

Friday was a little bit too full to blog because I was getting ready for my dear friends to arrive. They came up from Sacramento Valley for a visit and to explore the amazing Yamhill Countryside. This weekend was the Oregon Lavender Festival. Talk about gratitude.... I could barely believe my eyes! It was a multi- sensational experience. Just standing in the presence of so much beauty was astounding. The intensity of purples against the farmland background and bright blue sky. The colors everywhere were so stark and sharp. The lavender fields were happily humming with industrious honey bees and every so often the breeze would blow and lavender imbued air would brush over our skin and fill our lungs up with its fragrant magic. Truly I felt I was in a story book and I was ready to stay forever.

Before we went I thought going from farm to farm would be much the same.....silly me! Each farm became a new adventure with different discoveries. They all had their unique stories and there was an contagious passion shared so many to become spontaneous Lavender Farmers. I've got it all worked out......
Lavender Fields here.... Hops for my husband there, my Dahlias and sweet peas will go there and oh yes!!! must have a flock of Merino sheep!

It was a day of so many blessings, Ecstatic Beauty and Treasured Friends.
And for this I am grateful
