This past weekend was the 10th annual Blanco Lavender Festival, and I’m still reeling.
Tent after tent of lavender products; from soap to fresh lavender, from ice cream to ceramics — everything was a slight shade of purple.
If you are a fan of the heavenly herb, Blanco is a Hill Country town that you should know about. The Lavender Capital of Texas is home to some of the more fruitful and abundant lavender farms around.
Every year the free festival is put on by the Blanco Chamber of Commerce, and seeks to showcase the lovely purple zest in all of its varieties. Vendors make their way down to the square to set up and share their version of lavender products.
