Fishing for Lavender Blooms

Sunday, June 1st, 2008

Have you ever wondered what goes on at a lavender farm during harvest season when there's nothing to harvest? Well, I'll tell you.

First of all, it's real hot right now, so I just stay inside my little farmhouse.

And everyone else fishes.

And fishes.

And fishes some more.
See the lavender in the background not blooming?

This is my cousin, Travis. He spends just about every weekend with us.
He's here to help us harvest.
I mean, fish.

Not a bad cast, Travis.

Just in case you're wondering - they're practicing their fly fishing.

Jack and Travis tied flies all weekend.

They're completely obsessed with it right now.

I told them they could probably be pretty good jewelry makers, too, being that all the tools they use to tie flies could be used to make necklaces.
They didn't pay any attention to me.

This is Lefty.

He says hi.

He stays in the air conditioned house with me.
