Lavender Festival last weekend brings 'purple love'…
When I went to the Lavender Festival last weekend at Pelindaba Lavender Farm, it was a bit transcendent – clear skies, a slight breeze wafting the lavender smell over from the farm, with marimba music playing and food & crafts all around.
The best part for me was hearing a little kid tell his mother, “Mom, it’s like purple love here.”
The Farm has been dealing well with its early season disaster, when a fire whacked the production facility, and the weekend’s success was in no small part because of the gracefulness & smooth handling of the problems presented by the setback. Way to go, Stephen & everyone!
