I was beyond delighted a few years ago to discover a lavender farm this majestic that was only a few hours away by car rather than half way across the world by plane. It is on the north side of Mt. Shasta and my dear artist friend Claudia is the reason I know about it. She arranged for a class I taught to visit the farm one afternoon after closing so that we could enjoy this sumptuous evening glow across the bands of purple. Not only that, but she made a fabulous French style dinner for our group and we were transported instantly without having to deal with luggage, airports, language barriers or jet lag. Thank you dear friend and thank you Gail for creating such an amazing place to visit, snip lavender and shop whilst drinking your lovely lavender lemonade.
