July is the month for the Lavender Festival in Sequim on the Olympic Peninsula, Washington.
While a lot of the Olympic Peninsula is rain forest (up to 150 inches a year), sunny Sequim only gets about 17 inches of rain a year, perfect for growing lavender.

what a lovely sight that is
The scent must be glorious. Lavender is such a super herb – good for headaches and de-stressing and sleep.
It was intoxicating!
