I was headed to Newberg this afternoon to visit a couple of our patients. I passed by a lavender farm that I have never seen open before. I love lavender--the plant, the color and the scent. So I had to stop and get a bunch to take to the ladies I would be seeing. The kids were manning the booth while Mom took a break. The middle child, a boy, asked if he could help me and seeing I was wearing a dress and high heels, he gallantly asked if he could pick a bouquet for me. I told him that would be very nice of him. He then asked which kind of lavender that I would like. The field was full of several varieties that I had never seen before. I didn't have to think long to say I wanted a little of each. While he was cutting my bouquet, I had to take a few photos of the wonderful field and an artist quietly working with her pastels. I am happy to share the photos, but I wish I could share the delightful scent as well!
