Sequim Washington has great year-round weather which allows for wonderful local farms full of produce and flowers. July brings the Lavender Festival and the Sequim Lavender Farm Faire. You can find lavender in so many ways, such as live plants, seeds, in crafts like sachets, dried bundles, in beverages, and more! One of the farms has a male and female peacock in a fensed area, and we’ve seen eagles overhead.
