Here we are, May 17 th and Spring is flying by! I really love this time of year; the whole property is filled with an abundance of color. Almost all my roses are in full bloom! The lavender is ahead of schedule as well and seems to be ready for summer! The Thumbelina Leigh and Buena Vista are particularly ready, as they are about to bloom. It won’t be much longer until the Royal, Purple, Royal Velvet and the other English varieties join them, creating a profusion of vibrant purple.
We are busy little bees around here, preparing for the upcoming Lavender Harvest Days. There are some new and exciting things happening around the farm. I’ll share more on that later; it’s a work in progress. Truly never a dull moment!
I hope you will join us to celebrate this beautiful plant and all it has to offer! The dates for our Lavender Harvest Days will be July 8 th -10 th , 10AM-3PM each day. If you are an artist or a crafter interested in becoming a vendor please email me @ selahlavender@gmail and I will send you an application. All items must be quality handmade or vintage.
See you then!
I think the Gertrude Jekyll roses are my favorites. Beautiful color and the fragrance is exceptional.
This is part of the Front field which is primarily Grosso, with Hidcote Giant and Super. It will bloom after the English varieties.
