June Giveaway- 1/4 pound of fragrant dried lavender buds!

 Looking out at my field, I see my lavender farm waking up and growing fast!  It looks like this year will yield a bumper crop of this delightfully fragrant herb.  We sell fresh bundles in season (mid July) and fresh buds year 'round.  You can purchase the buds and sachets on the Sunset Lavender Farm website any time.  The fresh bundles will be available for pre-order soon.  Send me an email if you want me to let you know when we are harvesting the fresh bundles.  These products are also available on our Alderwood Quilts website.

We haven't done a giveaway in a long time.  To kick off lavender season, I'm giving away a pretty organza bag filled with 1/4 pound of dried lavender buds.

I regret that I can't ship the lavender to international readers.  But if you don't live in the U.S. but know someone in the U.S. who would like lavender, you could enter and have me send it to them if you win.  Most of my blog giveaways are open to international readers, but I can't do it with the lavender.  Sorry!

To enter the drawing- just comment to THIS POST and let me know you'd like a chance.  That's all!

For a second entry- make a SECOND COMMENT to THIS POST and tell me that you are a follower of this blog (new or long time follower- makes no difference).

For a third entry- spread the word.  Tweet, post to Facebook, go to the website and Pin it on Pinterest,  post on your own blog- whatever.  One entry for spreading the word- not an entry for each form of social media.  Then make a SEPARATE COMMENT to THIS POST to let me know you told your friends.

For a 4th chance- COMMENT to THIS POST and say something about lavender (how do you display it, does the scent remind you of something, does a friend like it, do you grow it... anything at all about lavender).

I'm pretty easy-going about this stuff.  I just need you to do a separate entry for each extra chance so I can count the entries to enter in the random number generator.

I'll select a winner at random on July 1st.  I'll also be doing some posts about lavender in July.  If you have any questions or anything you'd like to know about lavender, let me know and I'll try to address it.

I love lavender, the smell is so relaxing, If it is organic I even use it in cooking. It makes a delightful sugar flavor additive. A small sachet under my pillow makes me sleep so peacefully

I have never grown lavender, looks like it might be fun to try. I have a bag someone gave me years ago, I put it with my wool to keep it smelling nice and they say moths, don't like it.

I have a few lavender plants to keep the bees around, I can't think of anything that smells as good and keeps the bees happier!

I LOVE lavender, it is so delicate and pretty & reminds me of my Mom, who loved it also. I like to make sachets with it. I think it's really cool that you grown your own.

When I moved from Maine to Texas a few years ago, I left my small lavender garden by my back door. I have missed it ever since! But this year, I have planted some here in Texas and have crossed my fingers that it survives the desert heat!

What I would do if I were to win the lavender is to make sachets for the nurshing homes I donate to, there are currently 4 of them.... the residents just love having as they call it Smelly Good things.. The favorite shapes are the fancy strawberry, the lacy ones and the bird sachets..
