6/29-7/1 Colorado Lavender Festival 2018

There’s much more to lavender than it’s gorgeous shade of purple. The plant’s quite functional, and is used in consumer goods such as foods and perfumes. The diversity of the purple plant’s shown off at the Colorado Lavender Festival in Palisade, Colorado. Walking through a labyrinth of its sweet smell is a treat in itself; imagine actually consuming something infused with that stunning scent.
