More Lavender; Mix-in Bald Eagles and a Sunset and You Get a Thursday Doors Blog!

Well, it turns out that I’m not done with Sequim, WA quite yet.  Let’s do a “Jimi Hendrix” visit to the “Purple Haze” (remember that song?) Lavender Farm.  It was the first day in Sequim for us and after visiting the B&B Lavender Farm we headed to our motel.  Then it was decision time, still early before sunset so where should we go to shoot the sunset.  The Purple Haze Lavender Farm was nearby so proximity made the decision for us.

The farm was closed but it didn’t stop people from visiting and taking photos of the farm’s landscape.  So we walked among the rows of lavender and other wild flowers and around a home that appeared to be available for rent (I’m not sure about this but it almost looked like a rental place).

After walking around for a bit another lady and I looked up at a flock of birds circling overhead.  They could have been Turkey Vultures but some of them flew lower and the lady said those were bald eagles and I could see the white tails and confirmed they were eagles.  By the time I changed to my mid-telephoto lens some flew off but others kept circling and at times flew higher.  But I got a few shots of them!  Later, an employee exited their farm building and was leaving so I inquired about the eagles and she confirmed they were bald eagles that occasionally fly over the fields looking for small critters for dinner when the farmers clear their fields.

Later we set up to prepare for the setting sun and were pleased at what we saw.

Here’s the sign of the Purple Haze Lavender Farm.

Look up!  Fortunately, I’m not too tasty so I didn’t have to worry about being the night’s prey!

Oh, we have to have doors to validate this Thursday Doors post or the Master Doorman, Norm Frampton, might take away my door keys.  This was the back door, or maybe the front depending upon where you are entering; the sign says U-Pick so this is where you go to get your basket or bucket to pick your own lavender , then pay for them.  Notice the stained glass (some people, like Joey tend to swoon over stained glass doors).

And last but not least, the sunset over the lavender fields.

  1. Like the intro with the Jimmie Hendrix reference and the photos leading up to the cool country doors were beautiful
    And that sunset shot was perfect end cap for the post
