The B&B Family Lavender Farm

 Three generations of McCloskey's make their home in Sequim, WA. Their adventure began in 2013 when they bought a dairy farm and entered the lavender growing business. The name come from the older McCloskey's first names, Bruce and Bonnie. There are 17 varieties of lavender grown here.

These are French Lavender buds. This variety has the most fragrant oils.

The purple buds are the English variety.

The English variety is edible.

The two stills used to distill the oil from the buds. Copper is used because it bonds with the sulfur that is produced. The sulfur will give the oils a nasty aroma. The oil is used in a variety of products you can by at the farm

Downtown we ran into a nice lady with this beautiful Cockatiel. 
He tells you when he has to poop. He did and the lady held him over a flower bed. 
No messy shirts.

Back at camp we played yard yahtzee with dice on steroids.

Maynard get an A+ for form.
