A wonderful weekend was had by all at our 13th Annual San Juan Island Lavender Festival! The weather cooperated perfectly. The sun shone with just a little bit of cloud creating a uniquely warm light in the fields. The gentle breezes made the blooming lavender flowers dance and carried their sweet fragrance to many a nose.
