Prince George's 3rd Birthday on Friday, More Lavender!

Hi there! It has been summer here in the Pacific Northwest...and I have been happily up to my ears in farm fresh lavender, blueberries and peaches! But...

Friday, July 22 is Prince George's 3rd birthday...amazing! Love the Getty image above...so cute.

It really does seem like a few months ago, instead of July 2013 that he was born...

And he is certainly a typical little boy! Last weekend he visited an RAF base and sat in the helicopters his Dad trained in, and is reported to be getting a new puppy for his birthday from his parents. Cute!

You may remember from my Tuesday Cuppa Tea post, that at the George Washington Inn B&B as part of the Sequim Lavender Festival last Friday we had afternoon tea, which included Lemon Lavender bars. You can read that post  HERE if you missed it...

but while looking through old magazines I found this in the October 2013 issue of Country Living:

Haven't made them yet, but in case you have the issue they are page 121. Here are a few other Lavender Fair photos...

Outdoor Sequim band concert in the park...

I'd call this outdoor sculpture...at a Cedarbrook Lavender...

At Purple Haze Lavender...a mini Lavender market, with food and live music as well...

Lavender quilts at one of the booths...what a fun long weekend it always is!

Hope you have had a great week, and I'll see you on Sunday with Tuesday Cuppa Tea!


  1. I know I'd love that lavender festival, the quilts alone are awesome.

  2. What a lovely posting. Beautiful photos too!

  3. I would have had a grand time at the festival! Did you happen to read the latest issue of Vanity Fair? A friend bought it for me because it featured a lot about the royals.

  4. That first picture of George is adorable!

  5. My kind of weekend. Would have loved being there. That little three year old prince George is adorable.

  6. I'd love to be at that lavender fair. What fun! Fun to see that cute little prince too.
    Time flies! Happy Pink Saturday!

  7. Lemon Lavender Bars! Sounds wonderful!


Thanks for visiting and we love to hear from you! We read every comment. If my husband's health permits, I love to visit andreply. Have a wonderful day and a cuppa tea always at hand! :)
