Lavender Fields - Week 4 - Watercolor Journaling Workshop

Another week at Lavender Fields! Rain was actually falling as I approached the gardens and decided I would have my students sketch inside the gift shop. There are so many wonderful items for sale there - soaps, sachets, pillows, lotions and potions and everything made with and of lavender! They had fun sketching and had only finished up the sketches when the skies cleared and we hurried outside to take advantage of the reprieve and sketch the lavender, now with a decidedly purple haze forming on the tips of the heretofore green plants. What fun they had sketching and painting out among the fields of lavender! We have two more weeks to go - so if you'd like to drop in for a session do come! Call Lavender Fields at 302-684-1514 or 302-684-1602.

Lavender Fields Farm is the only lavender farm in Delaware and is a wonderful place to visit while you vacation on the eastern shore. It is located one-half mile south of U. S. 9 between Lewes and Georgetown at 18864 Cool Springs Road. The store maintains regular hours 10:00 to 4:00 every day June 1 to October 1 and on Saturdays and Sundays, from October 1 to December 31, but will open almost every day if the weather is nice and someone is working in the fields. Other times visitors can call for an appointment at either 302-684-1514 or 302-684-1602.
