Wake up and smell the LAVENDER! (This weekend is your last chance to see the blooms!)
Yes, the idea of a lavender ranch is amazing ... but if you want to go, THIS WEEKEND is the last last chance this summer to enjoy the lavender fields in bloom at Historic Joyce Lavender Ranch. Just over an hour's drive from Lubbock, Joyce Lavender Ranch is -- yes, a LAVENDER RANCH -- nestled amidst wildflowers, windmills, and grazing cattle. Visitors can gather fresh bouquets, sample lavender lemonade, purchase lavender plants, enjoy a ranch-style lunch, and browse the fragrant
lavender items in the rustic gift shed. Kids can have their face painted with ranch critters and enjoy and informal horny toad hunt. Lubbock resident Kerri Doggett was one of 1700 visitors to take part in the 2005 event and emailed to share her enthusiasm for the fields: "I was blown away. I loved it! Thank you for the opportunity for a little rest and relaxation in a lovely setting." In addition to free admission, there are two complimentary classes: Cultivating Lavender and How the JLR Idea Took Root, 11:00 - 11:30 a.m. by Master Gardner and JLR Owner, Jerilynn Yungblut and Aromatherapy for Health & Happiness, 1:00 - 1:30 p.m. by Licensed Professional Counselor and JLR Owner, Cherisse Flanagan. Hours:
Saturday, June 17 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Sunday, June 18 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
