New paintings for Lavender Festival
I don't know if the lotus will be blooming at the festival, they should be, but it's a couple of weeks earlier this year. I may take a drive over there this week to see. These flowers are so beautiful in person, I don't think a painting could ever do them justice.
A painting of the beautiful lavender fields with the Sandia Mountains as a backdrop.
These are beautiful hollyhocks against the window of the Los Poblanos Inn Bed. The purple flowers might be flox, I'm not sure.
It's hard to capture the fun of the festival - there are booths with fresh organic produce, all kinds of lavender products, music, food, t-shirts, posters, paintings, goats, picking your own lavender, you name it. It's just a nice fun-filled day on a old country farm in beautiful New Mexico. Come and visit me!
