Week 9 Our First Big Group!

"Our First Big Group" is a bit of a misnomer.  On Wednesday Lavender Fields Farm happily welcomed two wonderful groups that just happened to be scheduled on the same day and time!   Our first group, friends for more than fifty years, the Alpha Master Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi Sorority traveled all the way from Lancaster, Pennsylvania to have lunch and tour the lavender farm and our (in bloom) english lavender.  Shortly after, the lovely ladies of Sprig and Twig, a gardening group of 36 ladies based in Dover, Delaware arrived just in time to find a seat before Sharon started her "talk".  

Nice hat Sharon! 
After a brief talk about lavender and the history of Lavender Fields Farm the ladies from the Alpha Master Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi Sorority enjoyed a nice lunch on the covered front porch of Warrington Manor.
 
It was such a wonderful day, after lunch both groups visited our cottage store, bought quite a few of the potted lavender plants that we have for sale and many of the handmade items we sell in the store. 
Thank you ladies, We'd love to see you again soon!

Next week:  Lets learn how to Propagate Lavender!
See ya then,
Heather :)
