The first time my husband and I visited Walla Walla it was a warm day in October; a welcome change from the damp chill of Puget Sound. Now every fall we reminisce about that indelible first visit which left us pleasantly surprised… and actively relocating.

Driving just outside of Walla Walla, amongst all the greens and golds, we come upon a pop of purple. Tucked into the fields of alfalfa and wheat is Blue Mountain Lavender Farm. I absolutely love anything U-pick. So when I heard Walla Walla Valley had its own U-pick lavender farm, I knew I had to go. A friend and I chose a breezy day in late June.
