Last weekend it was the Lavendar Fest just outside Beaumont, CA. It was a joy to see all the purple flowers and a bit surreal seeing a petting zoo and tasting food with lavendar in it.
The fest, in Cherry Valley at the Highland Springs Resort, is a kind of Western fantasy land. The resort, built in 1884, contains giant rusted crop tools sprinkled all over the property, vast lavendar fields and a great cactus garden.
I chose this image because I’m a sucker for petting zoos. Animals truely are lovely.by
