Fragrant Fields

Hi, there! Remember me? I used to write on this blog. It’s been a while, but I’m back at it!

I’ve been adjusting to my new living situation, and I’m starting to finally feel settled enough that I can rejoin the blogging realm.

In case you didn’t know, I moved out of Utah! I’ve been in Denver now for 3 weeks, and I’ve really been loving it. I’m finding new things to do, amazing things to eat, and exhausting myself throughout it all. But it’s been great! I’ve been working long hours, so I’ve found that the only time to really get out there is the weekends.

This weekend we had the opportunity to visit the Denver Botanical Gardens Chatfield Farms. They had a Lavender Festival going on. And hell, do I love my lavender.

The festival showed off lush fields of lavender, and provided several kiosks where you could also purchase lavender products from other farms.

I bought a little lavender plant I’m hoping to grow in my apartment (even though I know they don’t last as house plants) and some fresh cut to make some cookies and lemonade with (any one want recipes?).

The garden also offered food trucks, live music, shopping, face painting, and a stroll throughout the whole of the garden.

There were even a few painters scattered about.

We even stumbled upon a cute little bumblebee with pollen pants!! I was actually so thrilled to see this in real life.

If you don’t know what pollen pants are, go google it! It’s so cool (in my opinion).

Successful Saturday…but the weekend’s not over yet!

Stay tuned…
