And I love the way lavender smells.

That's why I love the Oregon Lavender Festival so much.

It will take place this weekend in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. Dozens of lavender farms will open up their gates to the public for tours, plus there will be an art festival in the quaint town of Yamhill -- The Yamhill Lavender Festival and Plein Air Art Show, where I will be selling my lavender sachets and other goodies with many other vendors and horticulturists.

If you are in the neighborhood and love
lavender as much as I do, stop by the art festival andor tour some of the lavender farms. You can pick your own bouquets, try some lavender lemonade, watch plein air painters, purchase lavender plants and enjoy the kind of euphoria-producing aromatherapy that will send you directly to cloud nine.

For more information about the art festival, please visit the
Yamhill Lavender Festival website.
