Lavender Winds

Hello Friends! Wow, it's been such a long time since I've posted!! I actually had to read my last post to figure out where I left off. Well, I am up to my ears in lavender! Actually all but two are first year babies, but two of last years plants gave me enough lavender for this large beautiful wreath! Also, enough left over for my dear friend Vicki who visited, to take some home!! I've been so busy planting and caring for my little lavender farm, I've totally neglected my blog. In addition to planting lavender, my hubby and I have researched and made the decision to purchase and put up a wind turbine. We have a nice breeze most days, and strong wind the rest of the days so this is a perfect place for a turbine.
Our little farm will be called "Lavender Winds"
I am having a ball, working in the yard, but my sewing and indoor production has been sadly lacking. Hopefully I will have some wonderful projects to share with you soon. I have been reading your blogs and keeping caught up with you although I haven't commented much.
Will post some new pictures soon. Hugs and Blessings!


  1. Lavender does smell wonderful. How grand to have so many plants. We have one in our yard and now I'm thinking we must need more. Where to put it is the question. A wind turbine seems to be the way many are going anymore. I see them often in my travels. You've had a busy time of it for sure. Great to hear how well things are going for you there.

  2. Well girly...I've been missing YOU and then here you are popping up again! I hope you are well.

    I wish I could grow lavender. I don't know what I do to kill it. Maybe Oklahoma's weather conditions are good for growing such things.

    Love to you...xoRebecca

  3. G'day, Sharon ~ So very happy to have you back with us you busy gal ... you were sorely missed.

    How fabulous you have enough lavender to create & also share ... & now a lavender field. I would love to grow it but am so highly allergic to it, oy!

    Have a beautiful day, sweet friend.
    TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon

  4. Hi Sharon ~~ Great to see you back and so happy and enjoying your Lavender Winds. Glad your husband is happy with his job too.
    Thank you so very much for your lovely kind comments. I am doing much better than I was, but still not really well. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers dear friend. I
    hope everything continues to go well for you. Take care dear Sharon.
    Love, Merle.

  5. I love the name Lavender Winds! Glad you are enjoying it so much!

    My Farmboy and I have toyed with the idea of a little farm... Honeysuckle Farm. If it happens though, it will be several years down the road.
