I just checked Peggy's field to see how much we could get from her first harvest this season and noticed how beautiful her interior courtyard looked with all the white climbing roses in bloom and the blue agapanthas against the rows of lavender. It is so beautiful out here this year.
We recently picked up a new pet, a black lab we now call Betty, who runs up and down the rows of lavender and happily greets the visitors. The animals are growing (and so is the feed bill!) Oh, and the horse at the bottom is Regalo, a really wonderful ride. We now have 6 different trails we are taking, about 2 hours each, all starting out on the historic El Camino Real. The horses are gentle and the guide is great (that would be me).
Teska, who is in residence this week, has been kind enough to offer to ride to Texas with me to
get badly needed supplies for the ranch. We are hoping to take our new samples to vendors in Houston....so wish us luck. We have lots of beautiful sleep masks, pillows and bulk lavender to sale.
until next time, dar
