Anyways! Whoever decided that U-Pick berry farms should also have lavender, was genius. Graysmarsh Farms in Sequim (pronounced 'squim') had raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, and loganberries. It had fields of strawberries that smelt so good, we nearly hyperventilated. We ate berries until the sugar rush took us to lavender-picking, and picked lavender until we realized we were actually picking bees. So, so many bees. I spent the last of our remaining cash monies on a jar of local honey, which now sits prominently on my desk for when it strikes me to build up my resistance to local pollen allergens.
This was a tremendously good day.
