Lot's of buzzing around the lavender field.

Category: Lavender | Posted: Mon Jun 23, 2008 3:30 pm

The steady hum of honey bees can be heard in the field. They are busy collecting pollen.

The butterflies and moths are busy too. They really work these blooms.

A lot of harvesting going on. It is fun to listen to the conversations my sons have with their Paw Paw when they are busy cutting lavender.

Our first Garden Stew siting happened this weekend. Special thanks to Toni and her family for coming out to Purple Ranch. We really had a great time with you and your family.

Until next time. Lavender Up!

Amazing shots of your family and the little creatures that love your lavender. I think the first one is THE best - however did you manage to take such a clear photograph!! So glad you enjoyed your visit from Toni. Maybe someday you'll have this Scot on your doorstep too.

I've always wanted to visit Texas. Blame it on all the western movies! I like the concentrated look on the people's faces while they're working. Bet the insects have the same look, if only we could see it. I think the butterfly action photo is a fun one.

Those are absolutly gorgeous photos.It is so hot to be working in the fields this time of year but to see them work it doesn't seem to bother them.
I plan on making a trip to Josha and then to Purple Ranch from there with my best friend Mary.

I was and is hot here. When we are cutting we keep our lavender body mister in the ice chest and that works really well at cooling us down. I would love for all of you to come see the farm. We are cutting daily but there are still a lot of blooms. When we get done with this round of blooms there will be another round following. We should have blooms through the end of September maybe first of October. I really do hope to meet all of you at some point. Until next time. Lavender Up!
