Festival Success, then an actual break

We had an amazing, succesful festival! A true celebration of the beautiful lavender blooms we have been blessed with!
Unfortunately, the beginning of our harvest was interrupted when Janice had an accident in southern Cali and broke two bones in her leg. She is recovering after surgery, and is hoping to be moving around as soon as she can!
Send your love her way- she needs all positive thoughts around her!

Monday morning at Green Acres

It's been a beautiful day here! Hot, but with a nice breeze that is keeping us cool!
The two newest kittens (now a year old!) followed me around the property as I tended to the garden and microgreens, playing and chasing each other.
Everyday the beauty up here is INSPIRING! The lavender plants are really stretching out now, getting ready to burst forth with color. We are so excited for this year's big bloom!

Now we're getting the place ready for the upcoming SOLSTICE MAGAZINE MIXER, this THURSDAY from 5:30-7pm! Join us! $10 donation to Surfrider Foundation SLO.
