Know Now COVID-19

If you're anything like us, the the end of the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival kinda feels like the day after Christmas as a kid. But like a kid who's birthday is only a month or so after Christmas, we don't have to wait long for more floral fun here in Mt. Hood Territory.

The Rogerson Clematis Garden located at Luscher Farm is open to visitors who would like to stroll through the blooms. Clematis are known as the "Queen of the Vines" and take a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. There is always something blooming throughout the year. The clematis are displayed in a residential setting which allows visitors to see how well they will pair with other plants in their own gardens.

The Clackamas County Lavender Festival kicks off every June at Liberty Natural Products outside of Oregon City at their Oregon Lavender Farm. Beyond the fact that they have seemingly endless rows of sweet, fragrant lavender, there's live music, vendors selling lavender products, food, lavender ice creams and various demonstrations of all the things you can do with this versatile flower. Please note: The 2021 Clackamas County Lavender Festival is cancelled. Save the date for June 25-26, 2022.

Eagle Creek Lavender also celebrates lavender season. This beautiful farm, located along the banks of the Clackamas River in the town of Eagle Creek (hence the name) offers u-cut lavender and a great selection of lavender products. If you have someone not into flowers, perhaps the display of antique cars will pique their interest, so you can still get your flower on. They're located at 27525 SE Starr Rd. in Eagle Creek. Barn Owl Nursery in Wilsonville is another gorgeous farm and nursery, currently open by appointment. Don't miss their culinary lavender, perfect for teas and other food and drink applications.

Once the lavender festivities are done, it's only a short wait to the annual Dahlia Festival put on by Swan Island Dahlias in Canby. 

The folks at Swan Island Dahlias know their stuff. They have an endless selection of different dahlias to choose from, many of which were first invented by them. Can you invent a flower? Either way, they were the first to breed many of those flowers, and they are simply stunning. From small pom-pom types to flowers that are literally larger than my head, the variety is dizzying. 

The dahlia festival is free and runs for two weekends at the end of August/beginning of September at their farm over at 995 NW 22nd Ave. in Canby. Please note: As of May 2021, Swan Island Dahlias has yet to determine whether they will host their 2021 Dahlia Festival.

Each of these events offer a lot of fun opportunities, not to mention great photo ops. Don't forget to tag your amazing images with #omht on social media so we can ooh and ahh along with you.
