We have visited these same places many times before yet as time spins on before us every moment is new and uncharted. This year we posed for our traditional picture among the lavender at Jardin du Soleil,
listened to the sounds of Geoffrey Castle's electric violin at Purple Haze. I purchased a beautiful print from Geofrey's wife Shannon Castle(very talented creates large graphite pieces on glass) Enjoyed watching the gracious, fun personalities of Mike and Rosalind Reichner(Roslind and Shannon are pictured together here) of Purple Haze Lavender Farm, what hosts. And the best part for me personally was watching this little girl spinning to the music with her scarf. Oh to be so care free, what a blessing in itself.
My spirit longs to be this confident and carefree
in public. Although Rosalind Reichner went out
to dance with her and the little gal ran off to the
side. What beautifully fragrant memories
to carry home.

Thank You all for enhancing my
Summer 2009.

If we could all be that carefree, who knows maybe it will come when we least expect it. Enjoy the cool down. Yeah.

I think some one has a birthday this weekend if so Happy Birthday to Lyndsey. I think there might be a Scottish festival in Kelso this weekend, you might want to check it out. I am off to Yakima and will be home Saturday night. I have three very skinny looking yellow squash coming on.
