A couple days ago Chris and I went exploring, hoping to find some lavender fields we'd heard about. Who knew they were only about 15 minutes away?
The Lavender Wind farm features acres of brilliantly purple lavender fields, a cabana where bundles of lavender are hung up to dry, and a small gift shop where we could buy lavender soap, caramels, bath items, and more.
They also grow catnip on the property, and so we left with a present for Abby -- a small "pillow" of catnip, guaranteed to delight. And it did.
Lavender Wind has a larger shop in downtown Coupeville that we'll have to check out as well, but the fields nearby were spectacular, exceeding our expectations. The purple level is currently a "6" (on a scale of 1-10), so it's just going to get better and better.
Will we go back again soon? We'd be foolish not to.
